Hello SS Friends,
I have tumors in my right lung and one is pressing against my rib causing a sac of fluid between. I'm experiencing alot of pain because of a pinched nerve and also because it's bumping against my rib. I'm on fentanyl patches (50mg) and have an important visit to Memorial Sloan on Monday for a second opinion that I need to make. Any suggestions on relief (pain meds or other) that will help so I can make my trip. My oncs say that cyber-knife radiation will be the only thing to treat the tumor but that may ruin my eligibility to do a clinical trial at Memorial Sloan. Any thoughts on something that will help for a few days. Really need to make this trip to Sloan! I appreciate any and all feedback! Thank you!
