The pain management for stage 4cancer comprises of TOTAL PAIN relief concept. The various components of TOTAL pain include physical, psychological, social, spiritual and economical pains of both the patient and the family members. These not only include physical pain managed by oral/intravenous pain killers. They also comprise of psychological pains being handled by counselling, social pains of separation handled by medico social worker, Spiritual pain being handled by a religious leader. This would be a concept in a nut shell, emphasising a team effort.I would like to accept your grandpa”s wish. The ethics of any treating physician is patient autonomy to be respected first. The concept of TOTAL pain management could be applied to you grandpa. We would be able to handle his complete symptom control not only pertaining to pain, we would like to manage any other symptom like nausea vomiting, constipation, if there are any to find after a detailed assessment.
