I was diagnosed with stage 4 non-hotchkins lymphoma, I had tumors throughout my body. In my back behind my gut, even in my neck, shoulders and face. I went through 6 rounds of chemotherapy, until my kidneys were no longer functioning properly due to the medications my oncologist had prescribed. Through out this time there was no change to the size or location of my tumors. I was facing the possibility that I would be on chemo for the rest of my life. I still have nausea and pain from the chemo treatments. I decided to try medical marijuana to heal my body. The doctor I saw helped me with a regimen to wean myself off of the pain patches I had been prescribed. Emily from Kanopli got me started with capsules full of Rick Simpson oil (RSO) mid November; I could feel it taking the tumors away, I was unable to get any chemo treatments for several months due to my kidney and liver function, after taking these capsules for a few months my CT scan came back tumor free on March 28th! I am now off all my pain and nausea meds. The vaporizer helps immediately with any nausea that I feel now from the chemo. I have not found this kind of relief from the pain and nausea from any prescription from my oncologist. In fact she told me there is nothing else they can do. I also have diabetes and have suffered from nerve pain in my feet and legs, this pain is gone there as well! My sugar and my blood pressure are back to normal levels. Emily is always quick to respond to any questions or concerns you have. A great provider that is compassionate, reliable, trustworthy and caring.
In closing I can tell you it works better than a pain pill or patches, I do not intend to stop treating my medical conditions with medical cannabis. The side effects I have experienced with this treatment are very minimal compared to what I felt on the prescriptions I was on. It provides some comfort to know that cannabis medicine isn’t habit forming like the pills and patches. After a lot of prayer and thought I am so happy I chose this option to treat my cancer. The solutions offered by the oncologist didn’t work, I was tired of being told there are no other options to treat the nausea and pain I was experiencing. I feel like Emily is there to help, the aftercare from my oncologist is non-existent. I have called her to ask about the pain and nausea I am experiencing and I am told over and over to go to the ER.
If you are tired of being in the ER for hours to still get nothing accomplished or have someone telling you there are no other options give cannabis medicine a chance to help you heal. I can feel the difference in my bones, brain and muscles. I am able to do trivia again and not struggle to find an answer that I know.
