AS A DIAGNOSED CASE OF MALIGNANCY,SHE NEEDS PROPER TREATMENT IN GOOD CANCER HOSPITALS.
CANCER PAIN GENERALLY HAVE VERY MILD EFFECT ON NORMAL NSAIDS.
FOR THEIR RELIF TRAMADOL,PHETHIDINE IS USED.
HOWEVER,THEY ARE ONLY ADMINISTERED IN HOSPITAL SETTINGS AND UNDER SUPERVISION.
IT IS NEVER PREFERABLE TO DELAY THE TREATMENT OF CANCER,BRAINS TUMORS TREATED IN EARLY STAGE HAVE SHOWN SUPERB RESULT IN RECENT PAST,INDIAN INSTITUTE OF CANCER,CHENNAI.T.M.H MUMBAI,ETC HAVE PROVIDED COST EFFECTIVE AND BETTER TREATMENT IN RECENT DECADES.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum

since she is a known case of brain cancer, she must be treated by an expert oncologist. i feel bad but if she dont get any relief by routine painkillers then only higher painkillers can help her ie.morphine etc. use of such drugs are very risky and requires her full history. vomiting suggest there must be metastasis(spreading). in such case you should follow the advise of her consulting doctor ONLY.

I hope I answered your query. god bless her. hello
i suppose you have sent your query in two questions. both i have answered.
1. My frnd has got a problem wth her sleep since an year..she is unable to sleep she is 17 and weight 33 plz can i get a cure for her..( posted in sleep section)
2. present one with history of CA and headache. ( posted in brain)

m i right? please do not hide any such info when you ask online. we will not be able to guide you properly even if we want.
