I have an interesting way to eliminate my pain. I have been living with CLL Leukemia and skin cancer for years and am successfully fighting it through a well balanced treatment regiment with my USN Oncology And my Veterans Doctor.

I have had some cancer removed by Freezing it off, surgery and biopsy,topical chemo cream and HEMP OIL WITH THC as shown on www.phoenixtears.ca . They do not sell anything, just give Alternative Treatment information free.

The Hemp Oil I ingest and the Edibles I eat allow me to be pain free for up to 24 hours. It is non addictive and because it is all natural, it does not have any side effects on any part of the body. It helps reduce and most of the time eliminate nausea from the Chemo Topical cream for my arms and face. I also have applied the hemp oil to pre-cancer spots on myself and my wife and within days they are healed.

My husband started with esophageal cancer, which recently metasized to his stomach, liver and lymph nodes which has suddenly developed into bone cancer, discovered when his humurus snapped when he was sweeping on patio. We are at hospital now, where he has had titanium rod placed in shoulder/humurus and hip/tibia (where an incipient lesion was found.) Pain is better now that his bones are stabilized.

How do you deal with the pain? He is on Percocet which keeps the pain around 4. Has anyone found any other drugs that are also useful? More importantly, what about the feeling of being so brittle that you are afraid to do anything?? Any suggestions much appreciated.

Thanks.

Depending on his age if he is anythng like me, i have to try and seperate some of my, what would be normal Osteo Arthritis, and other non Cancer related pain from the specific cancer pain. So, yes i take Percocet (Oxy Codone) 5/325 Mg, 5 Oxy/325 Tylenol but both my wife and i have to take 2 of those to get rid of most of the pain. Events like he is having, can trigger Arthritus and cause pain. If it's cancer pain ask your Doc about radiation to the areas where it might do good especially bones and ask for a master plan for the near term and long term to adress all major areas. Doc's usually don't like to do that but putting a band aid on one problem at a time is not good.

There are also a whole tier of pain killers above Vicodin and Percocet, and Lidocane Patches that can be used. Also ask about Shots (Cortosteroids) to the areas of pain. You may have to se a DO for that.

Also i would consult a Rumatologist to address the shots and bone density problems. He should not be in pain while he is going through treatment.

I also recommend the plan for him consider all the ways Cancer is treated knocking each major area down with Surgery, Chemo and Radiation. You both need to get two or three second opinions and figure what woud you do if you where the doctor and make well informed decisions.

I would also call TGen the researchers and ask for Joyce Shaffer RN.

All this information is in my personal notes.

 Dear Swamis1

Could you update us on your husband's condition?

Wanted to put my two cents in on pain meds but would

like to know how he is currently being treated.  My

husband was diagnosed end of Nov 2012 with adeno-

carcinoma of esophagus. 

Wishing you well

I have found that the overall best pain Med is Cannabis Oil, taken orally in small drops two to three times a day. The oil will disolve real nice with hot tea or coffee. It keeps my pain level down in the 1-3 range and allows me to get a full nights sleep. I also make Edibles with it and a cannabis Brownie or cookie in between helps also. Some one will need to get online for your husband to Rick Simpsons Site at phoenixtears.ca or look on youtube to see how it works and view testimonials. No one is trying to sell the oil so don't be afraid. The site is only for Informational and Educational purposes. Be sure to see the video there called, "Run from the Cure".

My fiance has multiple myeloma and takes time release oxicotin and oxicodone every so often during the day. He tried the patch but he had a skin reaction to it. I agree with the others, no dr should let a cancer patient suffer with pain!!!

Please be VERY careful with Percoset (the 10/325 refers to the dosages of the TWO meds, oxycodone & acetaminophen) when increasing dosages.  Yes, the acetaminophen seems to be a complimentary "booster" but it is also more dangerous than the opiod!  Very easy to OD and damage the liver.  The new max daily dosage is 3000mg and acetaminophen is in many other OTC medications, so it is easy to get close or over that amount.  Liver is already compromised from mets & chemo... when my husband started needing more & more of the opiod, I insisted on the straight pain killer not the combo... you can always add the acetaminophen back in separately then YOU have control over the dose.  Also, fentanyl works VERY well until there is severe weight loss. Another possibility, esp if there are bone mets, is dexamethasone.  

PS... I get what the naturopath is saying about chemo killing everything.... but sometimes chemo is strictly palliative, not curative (stage 4 anything). I'm all for complimentary medicine, esp at earlier stages. 

another recent development is a ketogenic diet, but MUST be approached and monitored by a oncology nutritionist.

I have breast cancer that spread to my bones which include pelvic, thorax, ribs, & spine.  I also have rheumatoid arthritis pretty much everywhere so it's hard to tell where the pain is coming from.  I'm a 65 yr old female.  My oncologist has me taking 800 mg of Ibruprofen & a hydrocodone 3X a day along with letrozole & Ibrance for the type of cancer I have. He also prescribed Fentanyl patch which I can't use due to constipation side effect.  My pain is unbelievable.  I can't walk much anymore much less do any housework, cooking, & washing clothes.  I have a very hard time getting in & out of the shower.  I have a wheelchair for going to the doctors or anywhere else that requires walking but my house is too small to navigate the wheelchair in.  My husband works full time driving his rig for a local company so that he is home everyday to take me to the drs, & he does everything else that has to be done.  I feel like I am a burden but he never complains.  My question to you is, has your husband suffered from constipation using those Fentanyl patches?  If so, has he found anything that helps it?  I drink water & add powdered fiber to my food daily but still, it feels like I'm passing razor blades & I bleed everytime I go.  Any advice will be appreciated.  I know this post I'm replying to is an old one.

Bone pain is no joke. I have been on morphine for 12 years, ( I didn’t know I would live this long!!! I was told to get my affairs in order, stage IV meant 2-5 yrs.....) so, yeah, I am addicted ....trying to taper off now. Wish me luck!

My friend was on strong pain killers, (opiates) and told me to take lots of vitamin C. For the constipation! It worked! I like the Vitimin C gummies , it’s like eating candy! Try 3 or 4 , if that doesn’t work, pop a few more. I dont think u can OD on vitamin C. Also, if you have an orange tree, just eat lots of oranges.
