Bone cancer and back pain when sleeping

Having no good positions to sleep in due to the wide spread bone cancer attacking my ribs and spine now after already crippling my hips. Does memory foam really help with relieving the pressure I feel in my back when I sleep?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. There are many good orthopaedic foams and mattresses you can order online after discussing it with your doctor also request them for increasing your pain meds dosage and supply so that you could have ease from pain.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
