My Dad did not have a lot of pain but he was uncomfortable in the final stages from not being able to move or shift in bed. We gave him the liquid morphine which is called Roxanol. You give it under the tongue and it is absorped through the mucous membranes. For us they said to give it if he was having difficulty breathing or pain and we could give it as often as every hour just before he passed away. If i remember right it was supposed to start working in 6 min. A triple action suppository also helped us- I know 2 of the parts were benadryl and reglan but I can't recall the 3rd. My Dad was throwing up or spitting up and this really slowed that down and helped make it more manageable. Hang in there, Martha
