Originally I had always thought that cancer patients would automatically be provided with effective pain meds, especially if the cancer was terminal. With all the opioid abuse by some, it seems that legitimate requests for pain meds have now been affected and this is not acceptable. I keep hearing that hydrocodone is this super strong narcotic. Its NOT. Morphine or Oxy's yes. But hydrocodone? What is wrong with these people? Some of these quack doctors are actually eliminating opiates for cancer pain. Where do we go to fight this? Is there some agency that addresses this issue?
