I have a good friend from university who broke his arm in when he fell off the roof while he was trying to rescue a cat. He ended up having to endure many surgeries on his arm and therefore he was in a crazy amount of pain most of the time. The doctors told him that not only did he have to take it easy and relax and that he would have to take pain medications to help him control the pain and stay on top of it so he could function. Well, my friend did not love the sound of that because he does not really like taking any kind of medication. He decided to go the medical marijuana route instead in order to manage his pain. I was unquestionably interested in finding out exactly how well the marijuana worked for him since I suffer from chronic pain too. Well, the last time I talked to him, he told me that he’d only taken 1 of the prescription pills that he had gotten and then immediately stopped the painkillers. He said that when he used the medical marijuana for pain management instead, it gave him actually no side effects at all and it seemed to help manage his pain even better than the prescription painkillers did. I’m not sure if he told his doctors about using the medical marijuana, however, the last time I talked to him he said that he threw away the painkillers and said he was getting another supply of medical marijuana instead. He said his arm barely hurts anymore.
