Need help to deal with father's pain related to spinal stenosis and arthritis.

" I have an 82 year old father who has both spinal stenosis and arthritis. His condition has continued to deteriorate for the past 7 or 8 years. He now has extreme pain and discomfort walking 10 feet. Doctors do not want to do any further surgery to his back feeling they may do more harm than good. He had back surgery approx. 11 years ago. Doctors have basically been prescribing Vicodin to mask the pain, which is not a good short or long term solution! He lives in WI, which makes it difficult to get medical marijuana but is willing to do what it takes to try to get some real long term relief. I am hoping for some direction for him? Thanks. Dan "

The most likely benefit available for your father would be in the way cannabis can improve the pain relieving effect of opioid medications. For some patients, this may allow a reduction in the amount of opioid necessary to obtain enough pain relief, and this in turn preserves some sensitivity to the opioid for use in pain spikes. Be very cautious introducing cannabis as this interaction with opiods can also exaggerate common opioid side effects such as nausea, dizziness, or sedation. Without knowing more about your father’s medical condition it’s hard to be more specific, but I would begin with only a few mg of THC, making sure there is a significant amount of CBD in the preparation you are using, and increase very slowly as tolerated to see if there is benefit for his discomfort. I hope this helps.
