A great place to spend quality time -- soothing and relaxing atmosphere indeed. When money is not much of a problem such a place would be ideal I guess with top notch doctors , nurses . My wife was taken care of in a Palliative Care center and there is no way near this.

Listen: 'On Call' podcast launches with focus on palliative care | Scrubbing In | Cancer Pain Who Should Care ? | Scoop.it
Palliative care is the topic of our first "On Call" podcast, a collaboration with KERA News (90.1 FM).
Chin M C's insight:

 

 

Innovative palliative care  !  Music therapy ...

 

Yes -- soothing music does play a part in palliative care .

 

My view is patients in psychical or emotional pain may not get to enjoy it. 

 

So i heard from the podcast that music therapy is used together with medication which is good. It is only when patients are very much alert that they will benefit from music therapy .

 

I used worship music to give my wife hope of healing when she was just pushed out from the surgery operation room . She was still very dizzy but I guess music filled her soul through the earplugs to her semiconscious mind.

Death is not a failure of the health care system | Cancer Pain Who Should Care ? | Scoop.it
We fight to keep our patients alive at any cost. And we feel defeated by eventual death of the patient. Why does this happen?
Chin M C's insight:

 

Great read ..If we can get over fear, culture , taboo etc death is a subject that is uncomfortable to talk about but let face it - We cannot denial that -- man in mortal.


It would be helpful for doctors and patients to talk about it . Doctors must not be afraid to talk about about impending death with their end of life stage patients.

 

Many thanks to them for giving tender loving care to whatever medication available to make the patients comfortable during the critical period. Such care and medication would alleviate physical, emotional pain the patients are dealing with.

Nonsensical rules are binding the hands of caregivers - KevinMD.com

Nonsensical rules are binding the hands of caregivers - KevinMD.com | Cancer Pain Who Should Care ? | Scoop.it
The miracle drug meant to keep people like Soni's mom comfortable, can no longer be given just by doctor's order. ... Agonizing over the unnecessary pain my patient was suffering, I begged the pharmacist to hurry up.
Chin M C's insight:

 

Cancer patients like my wife had go endure cancer pain very often . Palliative Doctors and Nurses had explained that Pain management was vital to make the patients comfortable. 

 

That;s why palliative care has a tag line which says - " giving patients a better quality of life " . And often times a stronger dose of  pain killer medicine categorised s morphine is needed to ease the pain when it occurs.

 

Too bad to hear that prescription of such morphine has to be controlled and there is no exception as pointed out in this article that patient had to suffer hours before she passed .

Just Pain, Not Gain

Just Pain, Not Gain | Cancer Pain Who Should Care ? | Scoop.it
My Status: In pain Mood: Coming out of the dark This post is a completely different one that I had planned for yesterday—a post I didn't get to because of pain.
Chin M C's insight:

 

Yes , coping with cancer pain is sometimes unbearable . Pain is measured on a scale from 1 to 10. 

 

The best is to get those pain relieve medicine within reach  as pain comes without warning . If pain is not relieved , it becomes higher and higher on the scale and it becomes even harder to get rid of. 

 

The doctors at pallative and hospice care center told my wife and I to get the right dose of pain relieve medicine whenever the pain appears.

 

And they cautioned us that is it did'nt work - one has to check in the hospitaal where they would give stronger dose of pain relieve medicine. They were saying --  "Pain can be managed" .

Medicinal cannabis: study finds Australians suffering chronic pain get more relief from cannabis than conventional medicines

Medicinal cannabis: study finds Australians suffering chronic pain get more relief from cannabis than conventional medicines | Cancer Pain Who Should Care ? | Scoop.it
Australians suffering from chronic pain may get more relief from their symptoms using cannabis than they do from some conventional medications, a study indicates.
Chin M C's insight:

 

 

Pain is manageable according to an oncologist who was prescribing pain relief medications to my wife who was having cancer pain then. She explained that she had to prescribe the right drugs and the right dose to relieve pain and to make her comfortable. Too much would make her drowsy and some drugs would cause side effects. 

 

Good news that this medical cannabis could relieve pain faster and more effective. Patients going through pain would welcome it.

Wow -- what can I say  !  

 

I guess we have to start taking care of our body by avoiding some food as highlighted here in this interview.

 

My wife only started paying attention to eating more fresh vegetables and fruits at the time she was diagnosed with the dreaded terminal cancer. 

 

I had better watch my diet too as I just discovered a week ago that my cholesterol is a little high.

 

We are what we eat .. Just take Vani's advice and start eating healthy.

Relief for Chemotherapy-induced Pain in Cancer Patients in Development | Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Blog

Relief for Chemotherapy-induced Pain in Cancer Patients in Development | Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Blog | Cancer Pain Who Should Care ? | Scoop.it
For cancer patients experiencing chemotherapy-induced pain, there is research being done to try to alleviate it. Read on to learn more.
Chin M C's insight:

 

 

Tkns for these tips : Two tips for some immediate relief:

 

1. Check your eating habits now.

Do you eat foods with at least 2 grams of omega -3 oils daily?

If not, adding a serving of cod, or wild caught salmon or a small handful of walnuts may help.

Since the ratio of types of fats is also very important, consider replacing processed foods like potato chips with a baked potato or a baked sweet potato. Start by replacing one processed food a day with a piece of fruit, a vegetable like raw carrot, few slices of cucumbers, handful of nuts, etc.

 

2. Eat meals with foods that contain the nutrients you need, especially omega-3 oils and vitamin Bs, which are found in shellfish, fish, meats, whole grains, and green leafy greens.

 

My wife stopped to eat meat especially red meat totally after her chemo ... and turned to fresh fruits , vegetables and nuts ....
