Opium derivatives, such as morphine, are the strongest pain medications known to man.
Oxycodone, a synthetic opiate, is generally the pain medication of last resort if all else fails.
If her oncologist is not sure about next steps regarding pain medicine, then you may wish to consult a doctor specializing in pain management.

I hope that your wife is being treated by a sarcoma specialist or at least in a sarcoma center. I am not certain why she can no longer receive chemo or radiation or her exact status. Is she in hospice?
Seek out a second opinion if you have not done so already. Make sure she is going to a sarcoma specialist . .there is a difference. You may also wish to join sarcoma support groups where you will encounter others with similar sarcoma issues. Many of these patients can steer you towards better treatment options or share information about clinical trials and if the trials are working for them or not.

As for pain medication . . your wife should ask for a referral to a pain or palliative care doctor or team . . they should be able to find something to ease any pain.
