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.
