The case of Dr. R provides a valuable reminder of the multidimensional components of pain, along with the importance of the meaning of pain and suffering. Patients may request invasive therapies, yet our clinical and ethical responsibilities entail careful evaluation regarding the risks and benefits of such procedures. Determine what motivates these requests, as they maybe an expression of the deep suffering experienced by patients who may be unable to describe this distress through more traditional methods.
