Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers: Reducing Stomach Cancer Pain
If you have stomach cancer, it can be a very confusing time in your life. You may not understand why it happened to you. Even scientists are still seeking to fully understand the overall causes for the various types of stomach cancer, and if there’s one thing medical experts know, it’s that not every patient will be the same. While you fight your battle, our Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers therapists understand that if you’ve reached the point of having pain in the abdomen, you may just be seeking some relief to make it through each day.
While you may have already consulted with your doctor on a form of treatment to fight cancer, it’s not uncommon for you to feel serious amounts of pain as tumors shift, grow, or die off. Our Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers therapists can often help certain to patients by utilizing a series of celiac plexus block injections.
It may sound scary to receive an injection of this type, but rest assured that patients are given local anesthetic into or around the celiac plexus of nerves that surrounds the aorta, the main artery in the abdomen. Most of our Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers therapists also receive intravenous sedation that makes the procedure easier to tolerate.
By completing the injection, the goal of our therapist is to allow the medication to enter your system and block the celiac plexus nerves that transmit pain signals from your abdomen to your brain.
Living with pain is one of the worst trials a person can endure, and we just want to help in any way that we can. If you have stomach cancer pain and need relief, contact Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers to see if celiac plexus block injections are right for you.
