Thanks to buying medical marijuana in Marlton NJ, I can say that I’m dealing with my cancer far better than I was without it. I was diagnosed with Stage III stomach cancer about two years ago. Needless to say, it was a devastating diagnosis. Most people don’t catch it early enough because they mistake the symptoms for more benign causes. I didn’t quite catch it as early as I would have liked, but at least it wasn’t in the final stage. They only found it because I finally went convinced that I had acid reflux that was causing an ulcer to flair up.

The doctors presented me with several options, none of them appealing. I first went through the chemotherapy and radiation treatment, which played absolute havoc on my digestive system and my throat. Then I had surgery where they removed part of my stomach after the first treatment failed to do much to arrest the cancer. The end result is that I’m in pretty bad shape even though I am still alive. My biggest problems are chronic pain and an absent appetite. Eating is terrible, and I can’t do much of it outside of liquids. It’s no way to live.

I don’t know if I’ll die from this cancer. It’s likely I will at some point, although of course I hope to put that eventuality of as long as possible. What I do want is to live as pain free as possible….and I want to eat! That’s where the medical marijuana came in. My doctor went ahead and suggested I do it and made the records available so that I could partake. It’s been amazing. It really helps ease the pain, and I’m hungry again! All jokes about the munchies aside, the weed makes me hungry and I can eat! I’m happier than I’ve been in ages.
