First of all, the treatment that you are getting for your breast cancer
is scientifically correct. Faslodex
is a form of hormonal
therapy that is given for metastatic hormone positive breast cancer. Just be sure it is hormone positive else the drug wont work. Xgeva is a new drug that is used to reduce the pain associated with bony lesions in breast cancer. The radiation
was also given to reduce the bony pain and to strengthen them. Oxycontin
, coming to your question, is a powerful pain killer that is given for pain that is refractory to weaker pain killers. It is of 2 types. The usual dose is 10-30mg and the frequency can be 8 hourly to 4 hourly. So, this is not even the maximum dose that can be given to patients and shouldnt be a cause for concern. Just be sure that you withdraw it gradually and not suddenly.
