I am so sorry you are having problems and in so much pain.
To be told you have something in-cureable is very devastating; I have been there.
It sounds to me like you need to go for a second opinion.
I do not understand the title of your post, "I feel guilty." What does that have to do with the condition you are now in?
Are you a christian? God is awesome, He is always there for us to go to in prayer and just talk to, and tell Him of our troubles and pain and ask for His help. Have you ask others to pray for you, and have you ask to be put on prayers lists at the churches?
Perhaps with a second opinion, the doctors will find out something they can do to eliminate some of your pain and keep you from needing so much pain medication.
Please stay strong in mind, body and soul. It is very important that you keep a positive attitude, and have hope and faith for brighter days ahead.
Prayers and blessings,

I hope you can find someone that can help you. It just sounds to me like you have some very uncouth doctors.

I don't know how old you are, i don't know what it is or how long you have had this problem........and, I don't understand why you can't find someone to help you.
What I do know is : You have got to have a positive attitude to fight this thing . Have hope and faith .
How about getting a new project to work on , video game or etc........anything to help keep you from thinking of your troubles.
Take care Obie, and feel better really soon.

Do you have any family? You need a patient advocate! Someone, somewhere should be able to intervene between you and the doctors. It is inhuman to let people suffer!
I have had nine back surgeries; right now, I have ice on my back to help with the pain. I was diagnosed with Stage IV, RCC with mets to the lungs in 2007. God intervened in my case and I was able to have surgery two and a half years later; I have not had anymore chemo since the month before my surgery. I feel very blessed. I go next month for lab work and scans; I pray everything will be clear. I have been off of chemo for a little over two years.
Don't apologize for venting. I do hope you find someone to help you soon.
I will remember you in prayer.
