How is she doing? I am very sorry that she is in this condition.

What you need to know is that it has been proven that high levels of narcotics to alleviate pain do not hasten end of life. Numerous studies have been done and there was no deterioration of anyone's condition under such circumstances due to the high levels of pain medications. Thus, it has been decided among the medical community that it is better to administer them to allow someone to be comfortable, than to let them spend their final days in misery.

This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Yeah you only have to suffer with pain if you might live another 20 years than they can't give you adequate pain medication because you might become addicted. How ridiculous. You don't become any more addicted than you do to any other medication you have to take for life. If you have to take it you have to take it. Addiction shouldn't even play into the treatment. When you suffer chronic pain you're just taking advantage of the system, it's all in your mind, your just lazy or you're a malingerer.
