Be an advocate.... you took way to long to agree. Bob tried to tell you.

When Bob and I had those discussions I had applied under the terminal patient application. They waive most of the fees, but most importantly if your doctor believes you could die within six months, they give a terminal patient card. Well I applied for the same, as I refused to be fingerprinted for medicine, and my PA with my oncologist said seaoat I think you could last a year and this is too early. So I waited until my hormones went off the chart, and then they signed the card, but it took two full months to get illinois to issue the card. Two months of unknowing suffering when these simple drugs are so effective. I have a feeling Bob probably went for the high THC which could get you loopy, but if I am continue to keep one business open, I cannot be loopy. So far the 1/2 dose and 1/1 ratios seem to really work. Now none of this changes my mortality, as the disease is progressing and they will try one desperate attempt to slow it in the November surgery, but the quality of life improvements are priceless. My wife has told my daughter that I am much more calm and relaxed than before when the pain had me constantly on edge. All good. The train is going to arrive in the station and I have no control over the same, but damn.....the train ride just got to be so much more comfortable.

It is a game changer. No buzz from the THC, and just great background pain reduction. I have gone most of the day without any medication, and still doing pretty good.

I decided to stop taking norco about 3 months ago and go strictly to marijuana products. I can't say that it's been as successful as what you describe... particularly once my neck and arms begin to hurt. But i was tired of taking the pain med. Something else you might look into is Rick Simpson oil... particularly if things get worse.

I have the Norco when things get really bad, but I take about 2 of those pills in a month, and after I do, my digestive issues begin as it locks me tighter than any offset with stool softners. Opiates are poison. I am not looking to knock out the bad days with tumor pain, I am looking at the vast majority of my days now being comfortable. Comfortable does NOT mean a complete absence of pain, rather a point where the pain does not break through that zone of comfort.

I reported to my oncologist the effectiveness of the medical pot at 1/2 dose and low THC but rated for anti inflammatory impact, but suspect that he is not a real fan of the same. I am going to report to him through the NW message board if it continues to moderate the background pain. I just cut eight acres with the John Deere and my tail bone mets were barely noticeable. However, that may be that I have not been bouncing around on the commercial mower since early July during the flood. The thing which has me hopeful is that my energy is up and I actually look forward to getting out and cutting grass. I hope the Bobcat gets parts so I can begin soil conditioning and planting late fall grass seed.

Seaoat have you ever tried MiraLax?

I believe Mrs. Seaoat has given me everything you can purchase over the counter, but the attacks by the disease on the large intestine with fluctuating hormone levels is very difficult to be regular for about five days for every opiate I have taken.....it is a deal with the devil, and now great regularity and significant pain reduction.

Cherry 1:1 (THC:CBD) Gummies 99.94 108.37 Cresco Labs

This medication has drastically changed the quality of life by reducing pain, knocking out bone met pain, digestive cycles are regular for almost a week and a half, and the lung tumor pain has been eliminated. The liver pain is still there, but getting rid of everything else has been huge. Feet, fingers, joints and spine and neck area with the anti inflammatory qualities of this medication has been remarkable. I think the key with me is the higher CBD ratio. The high THC content caramels were prescribed for bedtime, and I agree that they are ok, but with no CBD some of the feeling of being comfortable is reduced when just taking THC, and in all my doses, I have not even gotten slightly high or tippsy. This stuff is amazing.

Very, very good to hear.

Go for a refill of the gummies next week. I have way too many carmels which I only take at night time because of their THC content. This continues to amaze me on the quality of life boost. I expected to get light headed or high from the medicine, but the 1 to 1 ratio medicine at 1/2 dose simply does nothing concerning a change in my cognitive perceptions. I am tempted to intentionally take more than the normal dose to see if it has an impact, but right now the smaller more frequent doses have worked very well, and I do not want to risk the comfort I am experiencing by messing with doses.

Got my refill of gummies and after almost a month, I am convinced that older retired people should be flocking to get these 1 to 1 gummies because of the anti inflamatory qualities and a general sense of comfort without getting high. I am probably becoming a nuisance with the doctor's office with messaging them on how effective this medicine has been on bathroom cycles and on relief on the bone mets.

I tried some pot and hash in college and quite honestly it never did much for me except to get sleepy and groggy. After about two years of infrequent use my wife would not partake because she had got her teaching certificate and I just never really used it until a month ago. I always associated pot with the munchies, not being clear headed, and being sleepy. I have had no munchies. However, my appetite has been good for about three months after a scare where I crashed and did not have an appetite. I am very clear headed and much more detailed in my thinking as I appear more attentive. I have had no sense of sleepiness above and beyond my current tumor load on my liver which does have me quite tired.

I just do not understand why they do not legalize this at the federal level. This war on Pot and the war on drugs is all part of lies which have been fed to the American people which keep LEO growing, the alcohol industry killing people on the highway, and big pharma hooking and poisoning Americans. When will Sanity become public policy.

If all drugs were legalized we would have to accept that there will be those that choose to ruin their lives... just as an alcoholic does. There's no reasonable rationalization for the govt to do anything except to regulate drugs... like the fda does with food. Freedom has risks... but it's always better than a nanny state.
