    Has anyone here tried acupunture to help with the left over pain and side effects?

    I have a friend who has never had cancer but has lots of other issues that has acupuncture done and he swears it's great. Anyone here have any personal experience having it done?

      I also have a friend who swears by it. But I've never tried it.

      It's one of the services offered at my oncology facility. I tend to be skeptical of some of these alternative treatments but was talked into trying it "just once". That's all it took. I was sold. I had continuing pain in my shoulder after surgeries and radiation. After she put the needles in and left me alone I could feel pain working down my arm, through my hand and out the ends on my fingers. Hey, I was as amazed as anyone but I'm not making this up. I always get a metallic taste in my mouth when I'm doing this. She said it's the toxins working their way out of my body. I now go in every few weeks for a treatment and come away feeling tired and refreshed all at the same time. Weird.
