Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
I am sorry about your situation.
I am a cancer doctor
you should be on hospice care where they have nurses who can deliver pain medication and ativan for you.
you can also get palliative radiation therapy to your spine where there is cancer.
would you like me to help you find a hospice organization close to you?
we can't prescribe medications to clients we can't see and can't examine.
