“Dear Dr Yeo, I do not have much time left. I know for a fact I am dying from my cancer soon. Although my days are numbered, I do hope to enjoy Quality of Life. Please advise what should be done.”
“Dear Dr Yeo, I have a greatly Deformed Spine and intractable and persistent pain in the legs and back despite surgeries. Life was miserable!”
Low Back Pain
“Dear Dr Yeo, I am a Malaysian who has severe intractable pain in my left leg due to insufficient blood flow from blocked blood vessels. I was unable to go for any bypass surgery as I have extremely poor heart functions and had a few heart attacks. I can hardly walk for more than ten steps as my pain was excruciating.”
“Dear Dr Yeo, Neuropathic pain in this patient with severe scarring of legs after an accident and skin grafts. This pain will only respond well to appropriate antineuropathic agents and topical agents. Conventional pain killers should be avoided as they do not help the patients but can give side effects.”
“Dear Dr Yeo, I have been suffering in GREAT PAIN for the past 6 months. The SHARP PAIN started from my back, then it radiated to my right chest wall. The PAIN was really a torture! I simply cannot concentrate on my work & my emotion is greatly affected. NO doctor or pain killers work for me. I felt so helpless.”
Post Shingles Pain
“Dear Dr Yeo, I had an operation one year ago but the SHARP PAIN over my upper abdomen remained severe and intractable. It was numb and yet I can’t even tolerate the slightest stroke on the skin. I did not respond to all the pain killers given by my doctors. Please help me.”
