Marty has had 5 radiation treatments and the Metastron treatment. He is on 125 mg Fanantyl patches, 10 mg Methadone tabs 4 times a day and 30 mg iR tab of morphine every 3 hours for pain.
The last two days when Marty is asleep he "hallucinates". He talks in his sleep, imagines things, calls for the kids and the dogs and gets mad when they don't come (they are home, we are in Albany). He also scratches, pinches and hits me when I lay down next to him. Is this because of the pain meds or is the radiation playing with him mind?
I am getting sore from the "abuse" and he knows he has been imagining things. He has not complained of a lot of pain though, thank goodness.
The purpose of the radiation was to alleviate pain. Could he now be over medicated?
I am just wondering if this is common......
