I'm surprized your oncologist isn't helping you out here as well. Anyone with cancer, and the CP issues you have is usually on pain meds...this is really what stuff like morphine is used for. I don't see a problem with about
1mg of Ativan, or .5 every 4-6 hrs. You do have to be carefull, but it should cause a problem.
And, sometime pain meds can cause anxiety.
I don't know what to do about
the med. situation, b/c I'm usually the one telling people I don't want so many meds.
Oh, try a benadryl. There is sometihng called aterax(sp?) that is used for anxiety, and it is basically an anti-histamine. I asked the doc. if I could just take a benadryl instead, and he agreed to that.
There is a breathing tech. that has really helped me. Simply breath in your nose, make sure your tongue is on the roof of your mouth, deeply then exhale all your air, through your mouth, make sure you tongue is on the bottom of your mouth, touching about
to the back of your teeth. I'll tell you what this does if you wanna know...its a bit hard to explain.
you should really look into Engergy Medicine.
I really feel for the situation you are in, and i pray that you are feeling with peace and healing.
