Conventional Medical Interventions for Hepatitis C-Association Pain

for Veterans and the Public

Conventional medical interventions - Hepatitis C for Patients

Your health care provider may make a variety of recommendations to help with pain. These could include:

  • Pain medications
  • A transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) unit--a device placed on the skin around the painful area that sends electrical impulses, which causes a buzzing or tingling sensation, rather than pain
  • Surgery--recommended only if there is something that can be fixed
