Pain management is such an important part of your treatment so don’t hesitate to inform your healthcare team of your needs and your previous experiences or ask your care team to refer you to pain specialists.

Great point. I also recommend palliative care before starting treatments. They are more than pain management. There is good information on palliative care under "Supportive Care".
