How do you deal with medical system not wanting to give adequate pain meds? My pain clinic would only see me a few weeks later after I started having extreme pain in my back (they had started pain meds already from them when more cancer was found in my back). My oncologist wanted me to go to ER to find out what was going on and I did only to be denied any pain meds after they discovered that I had a large tumor on my spine in lower back as they insisted that I stay over night in hospital and see their specialist the next day. Since the pain did not occur when lying down like sleeping, I asked to have pain relief and let me see my specialist the next day. They listed me as AMA. My oncologist after the weekend (I had severe pain for three days when up moving around) finally saw the MRI results and prescribed the meds I needed and set up radiation sessions to deal with the tumor. I am having severe pain again after my first radiation session but my radiation providers only want me relying on the steroids they gave while I receive the radiation. The steroid helps some. How do I find someone or some service that will help me with pain which will be ever increasing as I have metastatic prostate cancer in my bones, liver, and other places. I have made it three years since my diagnosis which I am grateful for but I do not want to enter Hospice yet.
