When I found out I had cancer, it was overwhelming for me.
I couldn’t remember a time when I was more scared than at that time. The doctor told me that our prognosis was good, despite the fact that it was necessary to have surgery, chemo plus radiation. He told me what to expect when I had my treatments, plus 1 thing he reiterated several times was that I would have nausea. I recalled how nauseous I was while in our pregnancies. I couldn’t suppose nausea could be worse than during pregnancy, but I stood corrected. When I started the chemo, I was nauseous day and night, My muscles plus joints ached from throwing up, plus I was losing weight suddenly. My doctor told me to eat more, despite the fact that I couldn’t keep anything in our stomach. To help me keep food down, I tried medical marijuana. He told me a lot of his patients were using medical marijuana to ease the upset stomach that comes with the chemo, plus nearly every 1 of them is now convinced it was a miracle drug. Two weeks later, I had our medical marijuana card, plus I was on my way to the marijuana dispensary. The budtender helped me to get the best products that would be most helpful. She said that several of their clients were cancer patients so she was familiar. She provided me samples of bizarre gummies to help me see what I could keep down, plus that helped the most. She also provided me a vape pen plus a cartridge that I could keep in my pocket plus I used it whenever I felt the nausea coming on.
