It combined the use of PROMs and ClinROs.RESULTS: A high symptom burden was reported with fatigue and appetite loss as the most frequent symptoms, and role function being the most impaired function.

Out of 95 patients with average pain >0 in the last 24 h, 71% were treated with opioids and 24% were treated with adjuvant analgesic (AA) defined as antiepileptics, antidepressants and prednisolone.
