I stop taking on medicines many times and once the pain increases I again take them. I know my life is only with medicine and I have to live this way for my children. How it will be if I start taking on, any other methods of pain relief besides the medication I am taking…please tell me.

A. Try yoga, hot/warm baths, resting when needed, exercise as you can tolerate without making pain worse, meditation,walking a little everyday, having a positive attitude and reaching out for support, talking and realizing you are not alone can help a great deal. I had to accept I could not make it through my day without medication! When you go off and on meds, this can sometime result in having to start all over again to reach "theraputic" levels. You are not a druggie...staying on your meds enables you to be as productive as possible in your life and with your family.Good Luck and God Bless!

Mutations that increase breast cancer's risk, such as BRCA2 also increase the risk of other cancers such as pancreas cancer, skin cancer etc.
