I, myself, don't have retro-peritoneal fibrosis but my best friend of over 45 years was diagnosed 7 years ago. I want to help my friend and since she has no interest in getting on the computer after work, I want to see what others are doing and/or coping with.
A friend of mine has Retroperitoneal Fibrosis. It was in gone and recently came back in his abdomen, it was previously in his kidneys. He started prednezone and is having typical side effects from the meds. Will medical marijuana help the Fibrosis? what about the side effects of the meds?
