A Non-opioid Pain Control Regimen for Pain Management in Patients Undergoing Head and Neck Cancer Surgery
This phase III trial studies how well a non-opioid pain control regimen administered before and during surgery works for pain management in patients undergoing head and neck cancer surgery. Opioids are a class of drugs that work in the brain to produce a variety of effects, including pain relief. In addition to controlling pain, opioids can make some people feel "high" and can be addictive. Acetaminophen, celecoxib, gabapentin, ketamine and lidocaine are non-opioid medications that when given before and during surgery, may improve post-surgery pain and / or decrease opioid consumption, which may relieve opioid related side effects and adverse symptoms, improve quality of life, and decrease the risk of chronic pain.

Lidocaine Hydrochloride in Preventing Oxaliplatin-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy in Patients with Stage III-IV Colorectal Cancer
This randomized phase I / II trial studies the best dose and side effects of lidocaine hydrochloride and how well it works in preventing oxaliplatin-induced peripheral neuropathy in patients with stage III-IV colorectal cancer. Lidocaine hydrochloride may work by blocking the nerve damaging effects of oxaliplatin.
