520    "Most cancer patients fear unremitting pain more than the 
       prospect of an untimely death, and are surprised to learn 
       that most of the pain and related symptoms of cancer can 
       be successfully addressed by an informed patient working 
       with a determined health care team. This book helps you be
       that informed patient. Thoroughly revising their widely 
       praised 1994 book, You Don't Have to Suffer, Dr. Richard 
       B. Patt and Susan Lang offer a much-needed handbook for 
       patients and caregivers on all aspects of cancer pain. The
       authors identify the reasons why patients are so often 
       under-medicated--from patients who feel the need to tough 
       it out to doctors buried in time-consuming paperwork--and 
       argue that properly medicated patients are better able to 
       resume active lives and marshal strength to fight their 
       disease, while those in chronic pain not only suffer, but 
       also jeopardize their recovery. They demonstrate methods 
       that can be used to cope with the practical aspects of 
       dealing with cancer suffering (like talking to your doctor
       and loved ones), and describe all of the pain-relieving 
       options available in the modern medical arsenal--from 
       drugs and high-tech medical procedures to psychological 
       and cognitive techniques. The authors also discuss 
       depression and other psychological components that can 
       contribute to suffering, and explain how psychological, 
       cognitive, and mind/body techniques can help relieve the 
       suffering associated with cancer. The book includes 
       detailed charts of all the pain medications presently 
       available and it lists many available resources, from pain
       specialists to hospice and home care. This volume will 
       empower cancer patients to make informed decisions about 
       their care and will be of enormous value to the growing 
       number of patients, family members, and health-care 
       professionals determined to relieve needless suffering."--
