Is your oncologist board certified? Refusing something for appetite and pain to a cancer patient is at the least heartless. Megace helps appetite, maybe that would help you. I would find a new oncologist. One of the first questions to ask is what is your policy on pain treatment? I have never run into an oncologist who refused pain medication.
