... for a lot longer, it just took that long to figure it out. He completed his treatment and then tested negative on the breath test over a month after completing the medication. However, he still have symptoms and they have never really gone away, they are just not as bad a before. Has anyone else continued to experience symptoms after treatment? He can hardly eat and is still very thin. When he does eat, his stomach acts up and often times he gets sick. He says smoking marijuana helps. As his mother, I find this hard to believe because I think the smoke must make it difficult for his stomach to heal. Two questions: Has anyone else experienced symptoms after a negative breath test? And have other people experienced relief of symptoms by smoking marijuana? Any other information anyone can offer is great. I just want him to feel better. He's 22 years old, has a medical marijuana license so he's legal and lives in California. I live on the other side of the country and trying to help. Thank you in advance for your help.
