gastric cancer

I have been diagnosed with stage 4 gastric cancer, has spread to other organs and nodes.  I am in the process of getting state insurance.  What will a doctor likely prescribe me for the pain?  Pain is allways at least a 5, often times can be 8 - 10.  What are the usual narcotics prescribed and do they actually help?  Treatment to cure or controll is not an option it is to advanced and I dont want to spend my last days going through kemo or radiation for the 1 % chance it will work.  I just want to be comforatable for my remaining days.

Thanks for any help.
