Anal cancer

I recently went to a 80 yr old female who is diagnosed to have anal cancer. She was obviously in pain 24/7 so she is taking morphine 10mg every 4 hours.

I feel so sad for her, I know she can do more . I did some treatment on her and immediately after she was able to eat and felt better.

Apparently, what really made her depressed was the way the doctors broke the news to her. It was like just “a matter of fact” without a hint of compassion, she as just told to go home and wait.
