Thank you for your reply to my message. I am sorry your Dad is in so much pain. I am a physician as well as a prostate cancer patient. The new doctrine in managing cancer pain is TOTAL PAIN RELIEF. Forget tylenol & codeine. Go for oxycontin. It carries no addiction risk when someone is in cancer pain. Possible resources are:American Academy of Pain Management (209) 533-9744, www.aapainmanage.org; American Chronic Pain Association (916) 632-0922,www.theacpa.org; and American Pain Foundation (888) 615-7246, www.painfoundation.org.
Best wishes,
Henry Everett
