My grandpa is dealing with severe chronic pain due to cancer decimating his vertebrae. Any ideas on what he can do to help it?
Multiple Myeloma (MM)
He can take strong painkillers like opioids. If that doesn’t help there is a treatment to eliminate the bone tumor that causes the pain, it’s called cryotherapy. You should ask his orthopaedist
he's been on painkillers, but they don't help much. The cancer is also in remission, which is good, but his bones are so weak from it that there's not a whole lot that can do even surgery wise.
