    The problem is that you can only dole out so much morphine before it kills the patient through respiratory suppression but the pain continues to increase as the cancer spreads.

    Lost my own granddad in 90 to PC and my best friends' mom to lung cancer a year before along with my granddad's best friend.

    Fortunately in our small town there was no one but the family doc doing to monitoring and they died peacefully and without pain though probably a few weeks sooner than if they'd been restricted in their use of pain med's.

    There comes a point where the only way to alleviate the pain is to let nature take it's course.

    No one lives forever and we should all have a right to say "I've had enough".

    They are so scared of being shut down and investigated the new regulations are strangling them and ruining the quality of life for their legit patients.
    My brother is a pharmacist - wish we had a doctor in our family.


    I am aware of and fully agree with all you wrote. We're living in a time when if even a few are harmed [or upset] by something it gets banned, or removed for everyone.

    I know doctors are afraid of patients dying because of overmedication.


    Both of my parents died of cancer. My father had PC for 2 1/2 years and spent the last 6 weeks in the hospital 'in pain'.


    My mother had Hospice Care and was kept pain free. I believe if we are dying of something we should be able to sign a legal release form to be kept pain free even if it hastens our death.


    My family is Catholic and cannot ask for that deliberately.

    Around here the drug that we are supposed to use in Hospice is Pot.
    I don't know if Pot is the answer or some politicians business forces them to use it.
    Per Trump: The game is rigged (End quote) and the hell with excessive pain.
    Wonder if I will get another nasty gram or virus?

    I don't do drugs and don't know if Pot will kill extreme pain. If it did for terminal patients, I might consider it. In a hospice condition you would have to keep the Pot away from the staff.

    You can’t keep pot away from a ten year old , if you made it illegal. Good luck with keeping it away from anyone.
