I finished my treatment recently and everything appears to have gone very well. I fact, some of my very tiny “lung nodules” have been completely destroyed by the chemo and they cavitated and dropped out of my lung which left a tiny hole each time causing my lung to collapse twice! Extremely painful experience but I’m kinda happy it happened because it means any cancer cells that were In me have took a beating these past 5 months. I have another scan soon just to see if any are left at all but the ‘spots’ I was shown to start with are only a 2 or 3 millimeters each and are too small to biopsy so my oncologist isn’t fully convinced that all of them are malignant and could be scar tissue from a nasty chest infection I had around the time of my first scan. My oncologist is very pleased with how my treatment has gone and that’s a huge confidence boost for all of us. The 6 high dose cycles of doxorubicin and ifosfamide I have endured has been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do and ever will have to do but I’m proud I did it and have got good results.
My question for you is about the use of medicinal Marijuana whilst having sarcoma. Does anyone know what effect occasional marijuana smoking would have on let’s say ‘a lung nodule’ if I were to develop any more in the future (Which hopefully will not be the case) would the smoke itself make it any worse as it came into contact? Or is this disease just not fuelled by smoking at all? This is a question a few people have out to me and I’d like to know if anyone on here could enlighten or just share any opinions, all are welcome
