I had non Hodgkin lymphoma what can help me manage the pain?
I had non Hodgkin lymphoma when I was 3 and this has left me with weakness in my legs however my pains have started to get worse and now struggling to walk far and stand up for a period of time I was wondering if there was anything that would help me manage the pain?
Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
To control this type of pain, your pain specialist may use medications, such as nonsteriodal anti-inflammatory drugs, anti-convulsants or narcotics. Other pain management methods may include nerve blocks, pain patches, pain pumps, steroid injections and i recommend acupuncture and TENS and physiotherapy modalities rather than depending on chemicals .follow up strengthening exercises program for your legs and trunk.
such type of pain is severe and usually does not respond to routine pain killers. take analgesics like tramadol,morphine etc. skin patches,injections.physiotherapy may help
