Trying to control the pain


Recommended Posts

My husband, Bill, is experiencing horrendous pain in the past few days that is coming from the mets to both Adrenals. His platelet count is still not back up to a healthy level to start another chemo. Has anyone had radiation for the adrenals? What complications can arise from radiating for pain on both sides like that? The doctor says he will radiate if he has to but it will cause some problems. This pain is so intense that he has to wear the Duragesic patch at 250 micrograms and take Hydromorphone every three hours. Any help is truly appreciated. I had started my communiation on this board by saying he was still well after 18 months but then he suddenly took a turn for the worse.
