My mum is in alotta pain,she has 100mg M.S.T 3 x daily plus 25 to 35ml oralmorph every three to four hour,s,she has been to the pain doc and now wishes she were dead! i am alarmed that my once spirited mum is now thinking of giving in,my mum trusted this pain doc, and now he,s telling her he can,t help her anymore,mum has all but stopped eating, she is no longer interested in what,s going on around her and i am scared she,s gonna leave me,she takes antidepressant,s as well as sleeping pill,s,but they no longer help,her pain doc got her hopes up by telling her she could go to london for a pain pump,when mum went back to see the pain doc he basically said he could no longer help her because the local health aurthority will not fund the pump! i am a tax payer, how is it that a load of people from another country come over here and then get top medical doctor,s as well as all the medication,s they want, yet my mum who used to be a nurse ask,s for help and the system have let her down.i don,t know what to do and i,d be grateful of any advice.Callum
