What is chronic cancer pain?
About 75 percent of patients with cancer experience pain that is related to the cancer itself. Though many may find ways to combat or manage their pain, others will still experience chronic cancer pain or pain that may last even after the cancer treatments are done, and that pain may range from moderate to severe and even affect their quality of life.
Pain that develops from cancer may result from cancer that has spread to other parts of the body; bone metastases are the most common cause of pain in advanced cancer. Peripheral neuropathy, which results from injury to the nerves, may occur from chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation therapy.
The common symptoms associated with chronic cancer pain are burning, pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness that often begins in the hands or feet.
How is chronic cancer pain treated?
The condition may be treated with Calmare® Therapy, a non-narcotic, non-invasive medical procedure for the treatment of chronic pain. For more information about Calmare® Therapy, please click here.
Who is a candidate for treatment?
Your doctor will want to know everything that has caused the pain that you are experiencing, so be sure to tell him the treatments you have undergone and all medications that you are taking. This will help him in formulating an effective treatment plan that will enhance your quality of life. Also, be sure to tell your doctor if the pain has worsened.
What is the recovery process?
Recovery is an individual process, but there are a number of ways the healing process can be expedited. For starters, keep a pain journal where you can keep track of the pain you experience. Also, ask your doctor about applying hot or cold compresses, or alternative and complementary therapy.
Patients are under medical management during the recovery phase with an emphasis on minimizing and reducing pharmaceutical usage.
