Is medical marijuana a good option to help relieve side effects of lung cancer drug treatment such as nausea, appetite loss, and weakness?
I say 'yes': If they can obtain it legally, i would urge them to try it. For as long as I have been in medicine, I have been told about how effective many people have found this.
