 Hi

Can you please name few best opioid brands for stomach pain due to gallbladder cancer. My father suffers a lot from it. Doctor recommended  (paracetamol + dextropropoxyphene) tablet, but I am worried it contains paracetamol which can cause liver failure. 

Is there any pure opioid based pain reliever?

Your help helps me a lot. 

Thanks in advance

I'm interested in seeing options as well.  My dad's doctor just moved him to Loritab for his stomach pain- seems like there should be something better.

My mom has stage 4 metastatic gallbladder cancer. She has been back and forth between dilaudid and morphine. As of Monday she is with hospice and they are trying to regulate here pain on a morphine infusion pump.

Dilaudid will get the pain down some but the best ones for my mom were long term, med term and short acting forms of morphine. 

Unfortunately she was given Lortabs and Oxycontin which were damaging to the invaded liver. Oxy made her terribly sick due to the liver not being able to process the drug like a normal liver would. UAB almost kicked her out of the hospital for refusing this drug and she was a former nurse. We tricked her with the drug just to prove to the doctor team that she could not take it. This is when they finally realized to place her on morphine. Sad story but my Dad and I couldn't fave the fact of them trying to say she refused treatment. All on her birthday as well. The doctors made her cry and yes I took it out to the hall and got kinda ugly. Also let them know how I thanked them for ruining her birthday. The doctors checked her charts and saw her date of birth and their faces dropped in embarrassment. They brought her in a small cake after this messed up day. 

Morphine!
