2 radiations left, just can't

I had middle lobe removed Dec 2006 followed by chemo.
Sept 2011 lung cancer back in the form, of 2 lymph nodes in the center of my chest behind the esophagus. I've had 12 chemo's and 7 weeeks of radiation everyday (monday-friday) I have 2 left. The pain is my chest and side are unbareable without morphine drugs, I've asked to forget about the last two and am hoping the doctor says ok. Has anyone had experience with this???
Thanks for reading

Re: 2 radiations left, just can't

Hi . I am new to the boards as of today. I join in behalf of my dad. He has been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer back in May and one of his masses is right in the same location as you are describing. It is starting to wrap around his windpipe/pushins on his esophagus. He is always in so much pain, we do not know what to do. His ONC Dr. upped his pain patch but it is just horrible seeing him in pain. He just did his first week of radiation and has 9 more radiation days to go before it is over. He also has masses in his liver, so he has been complaining a lot about pains all over his stomach/back area ..... I am so sorry to hear that you are having so much pain. I do not think that they are sure how to help the pain stop <>
