Esther's Treatment

"Bite the bullet"

I stopped medication

Thought it would be ok

Local doctors can help

Not a typical patient

Therapies I tried

Three "choices"

Medication, not drugs

Therapies I tried

The programs my primary physician or my oncologist sent me to were either psychiatric programs where I would sit through group therapy sessions and listen to other people. Each person would speak about their pain management. There was also physical therapy which I did for a couple of months. I continued doing some of the exercises that are comfortable for me. Many of the exercises are so difficult because they cause so much pain. I'm reluctant to do them. I do as much as I can into those particular exercises.
