Hello Dr. Morgan & Tripawds,
Osa, our 13 year old beautiful girl, has a tumor in her pelvis that was discovered on Tuesday. We suspect it is Chondrosarcoma, but are most likely not going to have a biopsy to rule out Osteosarcoma. At this point, we just want our baby to enjoy every day to the fullest extent possible.
We are looking for your opinion on Holistic pain management , as we are in total information overload right now and confused and too emotional to make sense of it all.
Our Oncologist suspects it is affecting a nerve (maybe sciatic) so her pain is most likely pretty significant. We want her to be as pain free as possible, but also don't want her to be in a narcotic haze for the rest of her life. Ideally we would like to manage her pain holistically, but also don't want our ideals to get in the way of responsible pain management .
We have received 3 different pain management recommendations that are all over the map. The most recent includes 4 conventional medications (Rimadyl, Gabapentin, Amantadine, & Amitryptiline) which seems a bit over the top. Stasis Breaker and Bone Stasis have also been included in this treatment plan along with accupuncture. We were also encouraged to pursue Pamidronate treatments.
She has been on a very good diet for the last few years that is almost exclusively raw, with plenty of high quality supplements including Hyluronan, Glucosamine/Chondroitin, grape seed extract, probiotics, Fish Oil, CoQ10. We have recently added Poly-MVA and cucumin.

Please share your experiences treating older cancer patients with holistic pain management .
Thank you so much!
Jupiter Barton & Family, thanks for asking a GREAT question. I will make sure Dr. Morgan addresses it tomorrow.
I'm sorry to hear about Osa, please give her a smooch from us and let us know how else we can help OK?
