My mom has small cell lung cancer and is always in pain... We have yet to find something that works for her. She takes percocet 10/325 daily..the doctor tried ms contin as a breakthrough med..also kadian..then fentanyl patches..none of the above seem to be helping her.
Percocet and ms contin are crap for this kind of pain. Cancer pain is one of the worst pains we can endure. Fentanyl patches alone with fentanyl lollipops for break thru pain are usually the best. Heroin is actually the best pain med for cancer but unless you live in Europe the doctors are to scared to use it due to it's unjustified stigma. Ask the doctor about using the Duragesic Patch (fentanyl) and the fast acting Actiq (fentanyl sucker)... Good luck
I suffer from the same type of cancer. Tell me where her pain comes from mine is metastatic bone cancer related to the lung cancer and I use and recommend duragesic fentanyl pain patches. Come back to me when you can give me an understanding of where and why the pain is coming from? I have been fighting this for over two years and live relatively pain free.
