My wife (Julie) was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in October of 2015. She had taken Chantix to quit smoking in 2012 and was successful with quitting. However she did gain quite a bit of weight. She was 56 when diagnosed and 57 when she died July 31st, 2016 from complications from a whipple procedure to remove her tumor. Where they peeled the tumor away from her artery a small hole developed two days after her surgery and she started bleeding. The next two days were horrific as they tried to correct this problem but never could. It was a bad break since we felt she was doing so good after surgery and looked like her battle with cancer was over for awhile. She had faced it with extreme bravery and was almost there, but she was taken from us --just like that. I do not blame anyone. They did all they could do. I feel her cancer was caused from chantix since it changed her body characteristics so much. She was a healthy eater even though she did gain the weight. Oh well--thought I would share. John Manuel
Good-day I take 120mg of Morphine Sulpahte 3 times daily for back pain (nerve pain & muscle cramps). I also take Cesamet 2mg 3 times daily (for pain and nausea) and Codeine Phosphate 30mg x 6 tablets daily (for breakthrough pain). I have tried taking my Morphine seperate from Cesamet to try and narrow the cause of the swelling and I find the swelling seems to happen mostly due to morphine. I took 120mg of morphine this morning and within 90mins my nose was swollen shut. It's now coming up on 3 hours since I took the morphine and the swelling is staring to ease so that I can just barely breathe through one nostril. It's not enough so I can breathe but it's so much better than my head almost feeling like it's going to explode outwards And as I type this note my nose is swelling shut then easing. I've been taking this dose of morphine for over 4 years and my doctor has told me I will have to take morphine or some form of Opiate for the rest of my life. Can you maybe suggest a different medication that won't have as bad of side effects that I could discuss with my doctor. Even though I have never ever had to ask my doctor for extra meds or an early refill, I still feel that my doctor is hesitant to discuss other options. People are biased when it comes to these medications as I once was. I saw a documentary where FBI agents were watching a clinic, the officers when seeing a patient said "Well this person doesn't look like they need medication". Maybe the person's meds just happened to be working for them on that day. Who's to say that they didn't spend the next 3 days recouperating and therefore not being seen in pain. This is what I have to live with, I don't go out when pain is bad so to some people I appear as fit as an Olympic Athlete. Please Help
On day 12 of chantix and dreams are more than I can take. Not monsters or ghosts, but my worst fears coming to life losing a child or my husband or parents etc in horrid ways. Dreams so real I wake up bawling and screaming. I remember every detail for days and it put me in a depressed fog. ...
