pain pump for cancer victim

MY HUSBAND HAS LIVER/PANCREATIC CANCER, ONCOLOGIST SUGGESTED THE PAIN PUMP. BUT IF THE TIME LINE FOR LIFE IS 4-6 MONTHS- IS THERE TIME TO GET IT ADJUSTED BEFORE HIS DEMISE?

So sorry to hear about your husband.  I think if it were me or one of my family members I would go with the pump.  I think it's the easiest and fastest method of transmission of the drug.  I'm sure the surgeon will be able to get it in fairly quickly.

Do you have hospice on board?  If not, they are an excellent resource and will help not only your husband but also you and other family with the resources they offer.  God BLess.
