Hello Knowledgable Famly out there!
I hear alot about pain meds and LC. I have nsclc, stage 3b and central nodes, now a tennis ball size tumor in upper right lung (was fist size, down 30%!!) I have 20 rads left and about 22 chemos left....am I missing something? SHould I have more pain?..My hair is about 50% thinned out, and I have a scratchy head !!
The only pain which is not as bad as I was led to believe, is to my throat area from radiation and although it sometimes feels like swallowing a bag of Doritoes! Also i am radiation burned pretty bad on chest and back.
Should I have more pain, or are people abusing the pain meds?...be honest now !!
