> Ha ha, I think "the vapors" meant a fainting spell. What I was really thinking of was "smelling salts" which was used for "the vapors". D'oh!
Okay. I knew I was missing something there:"The Vapors". Anyway, I ain't fainting. Yet.
> It's amazing how much the peppermint is helping. I was never told to use it.
Totally freakish how well it works; For Me.
> I had zofran or xanax for day, Ativan at night. And Emend for the day of the infusion plus the 2 days after that. I never got worse than slightly queasy.
Kytril is in one of my pre-Cisplatin infusion IVs. Initially, phenergan was my night time anti-nausea prescription, but it effects me as a stimulant and when I missed two nights sleep, I quit it.
Without medication I am violently nauseous.
>Everyone asked me if my doctor gave me medical marijuana and I thought it was hilarious that medical marijuana has a reputation of being a miracle cure for so many things.
The endocannabinoid system operates through CB1 receptors, which are mostly in the brain, and the CB2 receptors which are mostly in the immune system. It seems implied that ECS coordinates CNS with the immune system. Anandamide is the indigenous neurotransmitter for CB1.
THC induces euphoria which drives some 'high-flown' expectations from our recreational users community. Positive benefits, such as for pediatric seizure patients, are now well documented. But there are wide-sweeping claims of miraculous cure-all powers, for cancer for instance, that are not yet, and may not be justified.
> How's your treatment going otherwise?
>Are you able to do much besides hurl and try not to hurl?
Well, as I say that I have run out of my zofran, so I am on the edge right now.
(AND my pharmacy just Turned Down my doctor's Rx!!??!!)
> How often do you have to go for appointments?
Monday through Friday 8:00 am for radiation. Every three weeks for chemo: the third and last is this Wednesday.
> I am really glad you're checking in here!
I must go spew now.
