My sister has ovarian cancer and has taken all the chemo she can take. She is now on morphine for the pain. Does anyone know if the weakness she is experiencing due to the morphine or just a side effect of the cancer.

Hi Jsthrasher,

Welcome to the Caregiver Exchange. I'm sorry to hear of your sister's condition and hope you will find support here for your caregiving role.

The WebMD Pain Management Center has more information on the side effects of Morphine , but I did see weakness and fatigue as one of them.

However, you might want to also post your question over on our Ovarian Cancer Exchange for more input on what to expect with various treatments and/or symptoms.

Good luck, and please come back to let us know how you're both doing.

~Andie
