        Hi Norm, Im sorry to hear about your situation. My mom is stage 4 pC with mets to liver. She takes the medicinal marihuana for pain, appetite, nausea and anxiety and I have to say it WORKS GREAT! She hates pain pills and refused to take them and we had no idea what to do and then her onc prescribed marihuana and it does wonders. I wouldnt worry about insurance its a lot safer than pain pills which are poison, they g...

            Hi Clarisa, yes its awful, I have been thru a lot with mom as well. My mom was dagnosed with Stage 4 PC with mets to liver in march 2013, we are still in the fight and praying that god sends us a miracle. For the pain I would recommend medicinal marihuana drops, it has helped mom a lot without the nasty side effects of the pain killers. She also has bad stomach pain and the drops do wonders. I just read "A ...

              I just post something about pain relieve. Mom is stage 4 PC mets to liver and medicinal marijuana drops or concentrate does wonders for her without the side effects. Is not addicting, does not cause constipation, does not irritate her stomach to the contrary is a great anti-flamatory and anti-cancer. She is 57 years and never had marihuana before and now if it wouldnt be for the marihuana she would be in awful pain. ...

                My mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 PC with liver mets in March 2013. As anyone with this cancer or any cancer she gets a lot of abdominal pain and sometimes back pain. She would refuse to take any pain killers as they upset her stomach, constipate her and made her drowsy. We had to find an alternative and came across medicinal Marihuana. She takes the oil drops and they work as a wonder. For anyone who needs pain reli...

                  Kenny, My mom did 11 sessions of Folfirinox and stopped working. She had her 1st gem/abra last week, we went for the 2nd treatment today and her platelets were too low so she will get treatment next week. The Dr. has now put her on 1 week on  / 1 week off. Im worried because I dont see anywhere people doing this, everywhere I read it says either 2 or 3 weeks on and then 1 off. I guess you and I ar...

                    Thank you Bryan for the detail info and the the positiveness. I'm keeping my mom positive. Your attitude makes a huge difference in your recovery and you are doing great. I hope the 1 week on and 1 off works. If anyone knows if this works or not please let me know. Pamela

                      I know Rose, chemo is awful. I feel for your husband, it so hard for me to see mom suffer so much. We are looking into clinical trials even if chemo works. I have heard good things about trials. We are looking into 2 that look very promising and our onc agreed with us and said we should go for it. He just told us that a patient of his has been in remission for 4 months after doing a inmunoteraphy Tcell trial. This is...
