    He is on a fentanyl pain patch and norco every 4 hours...he had 10 radiation. We go to the doctor constantly for treatments and checkups.

      If you think his doctor should do more, you can always change doctors, or at least take your husband to the ER for pain (if needed). Ask the doctor why he's still in pain. The hospital sometimes admits cancer patients for pain management with an IV with morphine.

      I don't have the same cancer your husband has, so sorry I can't help.

    When I want to ask a question about kidney cancer for my husband the site only allows me to choose inflammatory breast cancer as my required topic, since my diagnosis was that problem. Is there a way to avoid that?

      You can make another diagnosis on your home page for kidney cancer. Look where your diagnosis is and you will see an option to add diagnosis.

      Viking, you really need to contact his doctor. They can give him medicine for pain, plus he could have a different problem going on.

    70 years ago my dad, Rodney Johnson, caught this Muskie at a favorite spot in northern Wisconsin! He passed away 16 years ago with lung cancer metastasized to the brain. My mother and I are still here as 33 and 8 year survivors missing him every day. My husband just diagnosed with 4th stage kidney cancer with bone and lung metastasis. My grandparents died in the 50’s and 60’s from cancer also. Cancer has been part of our loves since 1913 when my great grandpa died of bladder cancer. We have lived wonderful lives and and have no regrets whatsoever. We are Norwegian Vikings to the core and fight with everything we have! We are going to have a great Norwegian banquet in heaven with every family member attending!
