      I was prescribed it when I underwent a stem cell transplant. It jump-started my appetite and I needed it for just a few days. I did not notice any side effects - but I was rather weak and spent most of the day asleep.

      I have a good friend and he still takes marinol to help his appetite. He is a Stage IV rectal cancer survivor like me.

      Pump is common with some chemo's. Its very easy to disconnect, I was taught to do it at home, saves a trip back to the hospital. There are different kinds of pumps , electronic ones are much better than the gravity kind. Good Luck
