How can painful breast cancer be treated?

She is 101 years old with bi-lateral breast cancer. She just told us the pain I an 8 or 9. we have prescribed drugs for pain. She has not taken any in many months. One is hydrococ/acetam 5-325 MG, the other one is morphine sulf 15 MG ER. Which would be better for her to take until we can reach her Dr. Thanks
