He needs to get his pain meds reviewed by his hospital team, and ask if he can also use voltarol emulgel (which I can, even though my main cancer meds rule out oral NSAIDS). Deep Heat and Deep Freeze sprays might also help, as might massage (if he is cleared to receive that)
i have a relative who has lower back pain due to cancer and has tried most things to relieve it. Is currently taking codeine and paracetamol, has tried acupuncture, heat pack and heat lamp, stretching gently, massage. Any other home cures that could help? Thanks
