ABSTRACT
We investigated the current status and problems of cancer pain relief, sedation for cancer pain and uncontrolled symptoms in patients with recurrent gastric cancer. The subjects of this study were 59 patients with recurrent gastric cancer undergoing palliative treatment in the Department of Surgery of our hospital. We retrospectively examined the modality of cancer pain relief, use of sedation and the reason for sedation. Outpatient treatment lasted 0-682 days (mean ; 195.3 days) and hospitalization 1-117 days(mean ; 32.1 days). Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs were used for all patients. Morphine was administered to 50 patients (84.7%). Analgesic effects were seen in all patients. No servere adverse events occurred. Sedation was used in 33 (55.9%) for general fatigue (28) and/or restlessness (17). We concluded that analgesia was sufficient and safe with nonsteroidal antiphlogistic and pharmaceutical morphines, but about half of the cases required sedation.
