I'm so sorry about your Dad. If he is on oramorph, this will make him sleepy.
As for your other questions, really only the team treating your dad can answer them and in seeking the information you need, you are not pestering the professionals; as his carer you have a right to know.
I suggest you talk to the nurses at the Macmillan helpline who can advise you of what support you are entitled to and how best to get the answers you need. The number is 0808 808 00 00 and the lines are open from 8.00 am to 9.00.pm.
Cancer is far worse for the carers than the patient, so make sure you are looking after yourself as well.
If you have any questions about Macmillan we would love to hear from you
