Chemo no longer working any word on CBS oil??
No. But I read somewhere that it reduces the size of some tumors. Hopefully it really works. I have considered trying it to fyi
I am just seeing this post and not sure if I am missing some of the dialogue,(so I apologize if someone has already mentioned this), but has the patient been tested to determine if qualified for immunotherapy? (Keytruda). It is approved for colon cancer.
Welcome to Connect, @carol1961
There is quite a bit of discussion about CBD and cancer in the Lung Cancer group. You may be interested in reading this discussion:
– Using CBD/THC Oil to fight metastatic lung cancer https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/using-cbdthc-oil-to-fight-metastatic-lung-cancer/
Research is ongoing. So far CBD/THC is still less effective than current drugs and dosages have not been tested or proven. Here is more information about studies done so far in petri dishes or on mice in a laboratory (in vitro) from the National Cancer Institute: https://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/cam/hp/cannabis-pdq#section/_7 (medical professional version)

@brenz makes a good point. Pembrolizumab (Keytruda), an immunotherapy may be an option to ask your oncologist about. Keep in mind that there is some research that indicates that CBD oil interferes with immunotherapy.
