At Cairo Cure, pain control is individualised for every patient. We consider the knowledge of the cancer type, the drugs available on the market, the patients’ metabolism, drug tolerances, and even the patient’s genetic morphology.
We provide proper education about treatment, including medication administration, expected side effects and associated treatments, and when patients can expect improvement.
If opioids are considered, opioid phobia and the risks of opioid use and misuse should be addressed. The patient is monitored longitudinally with return visits to titrate/adjust treatments. The risks and benefits of opioid use are evaluated regularly.
