    Pain management

    In my original PT scan my femur had a 4.6 uptake. The bone scan that followed came back negative. I started having pain in that hip 3 weeks ago. The x ray showed a translucency consistent with the PT scan. My oncologist said since the bone scan was negative he wasn't too worried. I am in my first rounds of chemo and already getting radiation for the tumor in my chest, I'm 25 rounds in and my esophagus is getting painful too. I'm looking for tips for a more natural pain relief and strengthening. Does anyone work with a chiropractor? Is there physical therapist that specialize in oncology?

      I have a friend that used an acupuncturist, but I never have. He swears by her. He said his pain was relieved when other methods didn't work. Of course, as always, your results may vary.

      I have been helped by acupuncture.

      Insurance wont pay or wouldnt in my case.

      Ask about black seed oil. Ask for lydocaine spray.

      Very good luck.
