I wrote an earlier post today about ongoing pain years after an Ivor Lewis procedure. Since then, I have read through hundreds of posts and have three questions for the community based on common patterns I'm noticing.
1. How big are the meals you eat? Can you give me examples? It seems overwhelmingly pain is related to eating. I'd also be curious to hear about everyone's pre-sleep rituals.
2. Can you describe the pain you experience? It seems most members report sharp pains and something they can cope with at home with opiates or with mental control. I also see a lot of coughing and burning sensations. The descriptions, locations and feelings seem so different from what we go through.
3. Does anyone have experience using marijuana? CBD didn't do anything. THC seemed to help but had negative consequences. Looking into THC-A now which doesn't get you high. For the record, I don't smoke and I'm not advocating for it. I'm just curious because it's seemed to have a large impact on symptoms.
Thanks for the years of posts I sifted through and everyone who battled this before we did.
