    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    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
