I AM 32YRS OLD AND A SURVIVOR OF TESTICULAR AND LYMPH NODE CANCER.MY BATHROOM CLOSET IS FULL OF COMPAZINE MEGACE ETC ETC YOU NAME IT IGOT IT ON THE SHELF.THE SICKNESS FROM THE CHEMO IS UNDESCRIBABLE ,NONE OF THE MEDICATION IN PILL FORM WORKED FOR ME . IFOUND THAT COMPAZINE AND [KYTREL]THROUGH AN IV WORKED IN THE HOSPITAL BUT WHEN I GOT HOMEIT WAS A DIFFERENT STORY THR PILLS DIDNT WORK.I FOUND THAT 1OR 2 HITS OF MARAJUANA SETTLED THE STOMACH AND GAVE ME AN APPETITE. I AM NOT A POT SMOKER NOR DO I CARE WHO IS BUT WHEN I TOLD MY DR. WHAT I WAS DOING AND IF HE CONDONED IT HE DIDN'T SAY YES OR NO.ITS A TOUGH ROAD BUT HANG IN THERE AND PRAY TO GOD I TS GOOD FOR THE MIND. THINK POSITIVE AND STAY IN TOUCH YOU ARE NOT ALONE

    Hi, I am also 32 years old and had NHL. I went through a bunch of Chemo (chop) but to everyones surprise it never made me sick, I was neverf nauseated or anything. I had compazine just i n case but never needed it, I would leave my treatments and go to Taco Bell. I mean I did losed my hair and after the 2nd day I would sleep for 2 days but it never made me sick. Hang in there. It has been 4 yeaqrs for me and I am just now getting everything back in order. Your not alone!
