I just spent most of the last week recovering from a spleen procedure (to increase my platelet count, all from chemo), taking Dilaudid around the clock. While it definitely helped get me through the pain, I'm so sick of the side effects of narcotics (constipation, digestive trouble, nausea, motion sickness, headaches, general brain fuzz). Medical marijuana is now legal in my state (MD), and will be available soon. I'm seriously considering switching to medical cannabis for my pain management.
Has anyone here tried medical cannabis, especially for abdominal pain or chemotherapy nausea? If so, please share your experiences. I'm really curious to learn more about this option. Thank you!
