As a former esophageal/stomach cancer/ CHEMO ( capecitabine & oxylaplatin) patient, I was pleasantly surprised to find him NOT chiding me one iota when he discovered that I used cannabis as an anti-nausea / APPETITE-ESTABLISHING drug. Nor did he advise me in the positive ---probably can't by misguided law. You use cannabis to fight the effects of chemo? he asked. Yes. I replied. He, silently smiled, shrugged his shoulders , and told me to set my next follow chemo session. THANK YOU. DrStarr
