Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

I am a cancer doctor.

I am sorry about your cancer and your treatments.

you would be a good patient who would benefit from medical marijuana which could help improve your appetite and could possibly improve your taste for foods.

zinc supplements can often help improve taste in cancer patients.

but medical marijuana is not legal in SC.

you can also ask your doctor for a prescription for Marinol which is THC marijuana in a pill for which could help

often times when you get gamma knife radiosurgery to the brain, they give you dexamethasone steroid therapy which often will help improve your appetite as well

let me know if you have questions.
