I am new to this site. This is my 2nd post. I expressed in my original post that my dad is suffering from alot of pain. He has stage 4 colorectal cancer that has metastisized to the liver. He has tons of pain in his belly area. He is on fentynal patch and oxycotin every 3-4 hours and still has alot of discomfort. I have heard alot about medical marjiuana but I cant find anything specific online that I can give my dad to read. He is fearful of the "pot" but I thought if I could find somemore specifics he might consider trying it. I also saw on a tv special that smoking it seems to work better than the pill. It seems like this is a taboo topic but I am trying to find something to help my dad somehow. Can anyone shed some light on this subject? Does it help at all with the pain or just appetite? I would greatly appreciate any advice. I am trying to get him to join the site but he just has little desire right now. He will read the posts I print out for him. He spends much of his time laying in bed. He is not able to go out or anything except for chemo because of this pain and the "blahs". I just want to find something that will give him a chance to have alittle of his life back. Thanks in advance and I will pray for all of you!
