Post Surgery Pain.

Discussion in 'Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications' started by Menchville, Jun 6, 2013.

  1. I have posted 2 other threads(listed below), which have followed my month experience of Melanoma extraction.

    To sum it all up, 4 weeks ago I was diagnosed with a form of cancer called Melanoma, it was found through a odd shaped mole on my upper right shoulder blade, I was scheduled to have surgery this morning, and the surgery went as planned.
    3 Incisions were made, 3 lymph nodes were taken out this morning, and I was warned that a large amount of pain would come over the next 7 days as the lymphatic groupings are trying to fill in the spot where they cut the individual few out.
    They prescribed me Perocet for the pain, 30 pills. I personally feel as if I have a addictive personality, definitely when it comes to things like this...
    I was thinking, possibly attempting to take home-made THC Caps instead of the perocet, I have home-grown buds and I have a good recipe that I used back when I was on my edible craze, the potency is very high compared to a regular smoke, and it lasts anywhere from 2 - 6 hours.
    I would be using a 85% Indcia strain, that I have used for the last few weeks to help with the original incision they made, and it seems to be working a-lot better then my heady sativas.
    I have told my parents(I am 20), and my father says that it won't kill the pain at all and instead make you concentrate on it more, this seems to be a misconception in some smokers minds, that it enhances the pain...due to the fact that your brain thinks about the problem more, sending pings to your pain sensors in response, resulting in pain.  My mother, doesn't agree at all...would prefer me take the Perocet, but that is because she was never a advocate for marijuana, and is worried I will piss hot on a drug test for the U.S Army, but I will not be receiving any drug tests till August 20+, when I return to school and my post, and regardless...If the Army finds out about the surgery or the Melanoma, I will be medically discharged anyways without question. 
    I am sorry for this long thread, but does anyone want to throw their opinions out on the matter? Would be appreciated.
    Thanks GC.   :smoke:

    FYI- Cannador is a natural extract of cannabis in a pill form. Your home-made pills would be a reasonable approximation of Cannador!

    Ever thought of sending me an email (bottom of my sig) to get your own copy of "Granny's List"?  Then you'd have 1000+ pages of stuff like that at your fingertips! :yay:
    Granny    :wave:
  3. Currently reading through all 4 documents, will report back when I have finished, seems promising.
    But then again, it is from Granny.  :bongin:
  4. I had two lung surgeries when I was 18 for spontaneous pneumothorax. Post surgery I was in a lot of pain and really had no choice but to take my percocets and darvocets regularly. I didn't eat for about four days then finally broke down and had a buddy deliver me a sack. I questioned myself smoking so soon after surgery but I took it very easy. Not only did it help with the pain a little bit but I was less spacey from the pills and was able to eat again. 
  5. OP's dad seems to be spewing old rhetoric from the governments propaganda machine...
    Listen to granny...she knows more about mmj then anyone I've seen yet. :metal:
