Suffering with perthes disease, severe pain. Will medical marijuana prove beneficial?

Hi i have a question about medical marijuana. I had a past disease in my right hip called perthes disease. I have been over it for a while but it takes 5 years for the bone to grow back in the joint . Perthes disease causes the bloodflow to stop in the joint and then it dies off. It still causes me pain often. I was wondering if medical marijuana would be a good solution?

Thank for asking to HCM
I can understand your worry, the marijuana is narcotic drug and it can only be taken after the failure of NSAID drug otherwise you need to try NSAID first If Iwould be yuor Doctor then I would certainly advise you for NSAID and this of course gives good result worth taking have nice day.
