Can you use marijuana to treat post kidney transplants with ongoing nausea?

Absolutely Not: Marijuana is not safe in post transplant patients as it may interact with many of the anti rejection medications and alter their levels. Consuming marijuana will also disqualify you from getting another transplant in the future if this one fails. ...Read more

No.: Vaporizing merely eliminates smoke . A marijuana joint burns up to 2, 012 degrees fahrenheit (1.100 degree c) and in the process creates many harmful carcinogens. Smoke is the prime cause of lung cancer and other respiratory disorders but it doesn't eliminate all toxins. ...Read more

Part 2: oops - hit the return key too soon. If you read my first post, here's the rest: I found reference to increased heart rate, but NOT increased BP. I suggest you purchase an inexpensive cuff and measure your own actual BP before and after exposure. Remember that it's safe for BP to rise with exertion and stress. On a stress test, it's healthy to see BP go from 120/80 to 200/90 during exercise. OK? ...Read more

Precautions: The marijuana may relax you, but may also exacerbate your problems significantly, so could be deleterious. If not legal where you live, there is another aspect of concern.

Marijuana: Marijuana has been shown to reduce anxiety and insomnia but you must also be careful because some types of marijuana in some people can actually increase anxiety. Talk to your doctor and of course work with your state dispensary to know you are getting a pure and medically reliable strain. Good luck. ...Read more

Sould people that have had a kidney transplant stay away from marijuana? Or is it no big deal to smoke after transplant?

Bad idea : Standard answer is that we fear anything foreign going into immunosuppressed lungs because of infection. We also worry about irresponsible behavior - skipping med doses and appointments, etc. However, if that is avoided, occasional use may be reasonable. ...Read more

Absolutely it will: Smoking generates carbon monoxide and other compounds that injury the lining of blood vessels, the endothelium. Patients with kidney transplants are already at risk for endothelial injury based on hypertension, diabetes, and immunosuppressive drugs. The #1 cause of death and kidney loss is related to endothelial cell injury, namely heart attacks and transplant nephropathy. Don't do it! ...Read more

Harms blood vessels: Promotes arteriosclerosis which reduces blood flow to kidneys ; heart which promotes hypertension which in turn damages the kidneys. Of course smoking improves your chances of developing lung cancer which can spread to the kidneys and kill you. Think of the generous kidney donor who has given you life.Transplanted kidneys have enough of a rough time without imposing additional unnecessary risk. ...Read more
