Hi WV Girl,
Wow, I was hoping by now that you had already kicked your PM dr to the curb and was in with a new one that is treating you right. Did you ever speak with your oncologist about a new pM dr. I had spoken with you before on here about that.
I really hate to hear that you are having such a hard time. The cancer situation is enough to deal with in itself, but under treated pain is just terrible, I cannot begin to imagine how you are coping with it all.
My mom had lung cancer and she opted for radiation over chemo. She saw too many people (close friends) be ill from the chemo and since she was terminal she did not want to be sick all of the time. Her radiation went fine and she did very well with it. At first she got a littled tired but after a few treatments that passed. She never got sick from the radiation treatment.
I do hope the new PM dr is a good one and will take care of you. Please keep us posted on how you are coming along.
