This is Dr. David

you should call up your oncology doctor to get refills of these pain medications.

your cancer doctor should not have let you run out of these medications.

if you can't get a hold of your oncologist, you should go to the ER and see an ER doctor for evaluation.

they can try to contact your oncologist and give you a temporary prescription for fentanyl patches and pills

have you tried to call up your oncologist oncall service?
