My father who is age 65 underwent surgery 4 months ago to have his Kidney removed after being diagnosed with stage 4 Kindey Cancer.The cancer has spread to his lungs(2 small spots) and now he was just told to the bottom of his throat.He has been experiencing quite a bit of pain which he was taking Hydrocodone for but the pain has gotten worse within the past 2 weeks.The doctor has now put him on Morphine Sulfate 30 mg's twice a day,and he will start a clinical trial pill called Sorafenib to try and stop the growth of the cancer. Has anyone heard of this new experimental drug? Andhas anyone here been prescribed a morphine pill for pain? That seems to me that should be prescribed for people who are close to the end, but maybe i am wrong.Please,anyone who has any information or advice would be so valuable to me. Take care.
