I have a 92 year old grandmother who was diagnosed with ulcerated anal tumors. The doctor was pretty sure it was cancer and did a biopsy. She is in so much pain that she wants to die. Every time she expels gas or has a bowel movement she can't take the pain. Well the test show they were not cancerous and prescribed a cream that does nothing and gave her some Vicodine. If it was cancer...then they would have gave her radiation to help the pain. The Vicodine doesn't even come close to making her feel better. She has never taken a medication up until now. She has been extremely healthy and strong. I bet she is in better shape than much younger people, but....because she is 92 the doctor will do nothing. I feel it is not humane to let someone suffer like she is. Is there anyone out there who may have a suggestion???Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
