Marijuana use during chemo?

Hello everyone. This is my first time posting on here. I have been trying to find information on whether or not marijuana is ok to use while in chemo. Over my life I have seen several people use it during different types of chemo to help with nausea and to stimulate their appetite.  I was diagnosed with MM  about 4 months ago and brought it up with my onc.  He said it was fine, except during the steam cell transplant because absolutely no smoking of any kind is allowed.

New Diagnosis - Feeling Helpless

I'm new here. I know I'm going to ramble. I guess letting it out is good.

My dad (68 years old) was just recently diagnosed with Multiple Melanoma Stage 3. His primary care dr dropped the ball. He's had symptoms for over a year. It wasn't until he went to the emergency in excruciating pain and the inability to walk did they finally figure it out.

Tattoo

How soon after SCT can one get a tattoo? Is the risk too high due to bone weakness?

Although it's early and the study is small -- 35 people -- every patient responded and all but two were in some level of remission within two months. In a second study of nearly two dozen patients, everyone above a certain dose responded. (source: MMDevelopments.org)

Researchers Uncover New Way To Enhance Function Of Immune Cells To Combat Multiple Myeloma

Researchers have uncovered a new way to enhance the function of a specific type of immune cell that destroys tumors in multiple myeloma, a form of bone marrow cancer considered incurable. In their study, the scientists blocked a hormone-related mechanism that suppresses these immune cells, restoring their ability to battle tumor growth. (source MMDevelopments.org)

I'm burnt out

I can't take it anymore. I just wish one of us would die at this point.
