Intractable Pain Patient's Handbook for Survival
By: Forest Tennant, MD, DrPH
AN INTRODUCTORY WORD FROM THE AUTHOR
This Handbook is primarily intended for persons who have intractable pain (hereafter called IP). Others who may read this Handbook will hopefully not be shocked but gain an understanding of a relatively rare medical condition. I started my IP clinic more than 30 years ago in 1975. Since then I have learned and observed a great deal that I believe should be passed on to those afflicted with IP. Some of my current beliefs and recommendations, as time passes and science progresses, may need to be altered. Until such time, this Handbook provides the best information and knowledge I have obtained during the past 30 years in the field of intractable pain.
