The dentists had recently inspected my uncle with prostate cancer.
The cancer had already spread to various other organs, plus within a week, they were getting ready to administer chemo plus radiation.
He wasn’t distraught about the outcome of the cancer, although he was distraught about what the chemo plus radiation would do to him. He had heard many people talking about how it made you sick, plus how your hair fell out. He laughed plus said he was already bald, so losing any more hair would not bother him. He didn’t appreciate the weakness plus nausea that was going to come with the chemotherapy; My husband nor I had ever talked about our experience with chemotherapy plus radiation, however both of us didn’t guess anybody needed to think that someone all of us were legitimately close to had cancer, plus all of us knew how hard it had been. When I mentioned to my uncle that he might want to request medical marijuana, he seemed a little nonplussed at the idea. He asked why he would ask about medical marijuana? I told him that particular forms of medical marijuana have been proven to help with the nausea plus depression that comes with chemotherapy, however once he got his full diagnosis, he could talk to his dentist about medical marijuana. Many oncologists could now send the prescription to the state so their patients can get the medical marijuana card plus have their marijuana products ready to be used as soon as their chemo started. I was grateful that he didn’t ask how my husband plus I knew so much about medical marijuana, although he didn’t forget to thank us.
