Question:

How will my pain be managed while in UAB Hospital?

Answer:

 

Make sure you tell us if you have pain. We want to know so that we can control it during your stay. Additional ways to control pain may include relaxation techniques, hot or cold therapy, and deep breathing exercises. Please let us know what usually works best for you so that we can help! You also can tune to the CARE channel 116 on your television, which provides relaxing images and music to help sooth discomfort and pain. Remember, you are not complaining when you tell us about your pain; it is important to your recovery!
