This topic has the potential to be as insightful/inciteful as any religious or political thread. I can see and understand the benefit as it pertains to the relief of sx's to reduce dropout rates. Magnum wrote a while back about his medical MJ and the process he uses (i think it's with a nebulizer/atomizer) which causes fewer of the hazards associated with the paper/smoking aspects. I'd pursue the idea if I knew that the effects were no worse than neutral to tx outcome. Bring on that ice cream, milk shakes and of course the Twizzlers.
i quit smoking pot around 5 yrs ago but after reading this i called my old dealer and ordered an oz to help get me through tx. hehe
Well, that was a nice post. I legally grow my own from seed to harvest. In fact, I can grow twice what I do b/I have a small raised garden and like the peppers and tomatoes too.
Contrary to popular thought, smoking medical marijuana on tx or w/ a badly damaged liver does not produce the 'munchies.' I still have no appitite and even if I did, junk food-esp dairy-would be the last thing I want.
People don't get high, people get by w/o harmful 'helper' drugs. I've posted several times that almost all my fellow heppers do cl and have a svr. Organics all the way!
5yrs and 2 days ago I had a major esophageal bleed and almost died-saw the 'white light' and saw my body below me. The Doc said I won't make it thru the night! Fooled 'em.
2 wks later I was dx w/hep c-2b. End stage liver disease. 6 mos @ the most...too sick to tx. Well, I found a Doc who would tx me and a program S-P's Commetment to Care-to pay for the tx. no insurance.
I cl'd in 2 wks and fin tx 4 yrs ago. I smoked evryday. now its less and only after yoga and weight training, etc. kinda like 'happy hour' and also I still have no appetitie.
B/the moral is I'm alive 5 yrs after a major event that claims 90% of the victims w/in 5yrs-the bleed-and a 37yrs old hep c infection. So pot can't be all bad or I would be dead.
Thought pot promoted fibrosis big time. so I guess it's a catch 22?
I mainly put this one up as bait for Revenire....although I can see where smoking weed could take the edge off of tx.
Likewise I've read the data about fibrosis advancement with daily pot smoking.
boy, i wish your repodt said heroin.
I can't smoke pot...can you just IMAGINE how much ice cream I would eat? My God forget about HepC my arteries would just close up shop and move downtown!
Since I use ice cream to take the edge off - man oh MAN it would be bad.
I wish I could though...It sure might make treatment more fun! :)
Pizza and icecream cure hepatitis C.
Ice cream might be the least damaging of what I might woof down to take care of the munchy attack.
Gut bomb city is what came to mind as I read Mike's post.
I don't think anything like pot will hurt you, when done in moderation.
Pass that over ;)
Marijuana has helped me with nausea while on treatment.
Perhaps T injections is what got you into this little predicament? Just a thought.
For others it might have been crank or horse. Smoking and/or snorting T was more than enough for me in my haymaking days. But I never really was big on the hals.
I even knew a few who injected Angel dust, if you can imagine that. Of course one of them was hauled away in a white jacket when he sat on the school corner watching the space ships with aliens landing in the parking lot. I guess the boyz in blue weren't able to see the little green men as well as he could.
