Any Post Op MARIJUANA Users?



Recommended Posts

First things first, I am not some lazy stoner with no life, no. I am a very productive medical marijuana user who mainly smokes at night before bed and yes, I have priorities and a life lol.

(sorry I just always get negative feedback, mainly from some family members I told and probably should have never told lol still love em though.)

My questions are, how is your funtion with marijuana after being sleeved/bypassed? Were you able to use it for pain relief/sleep aid directly after surgery? Are you less tolerable? Do you get the "munchies" still? Did you smoke it or take an alternative route?

Just curious, sorry if I offend anyone. I know it isn't everyone's cup of tea but, I promise I am not a terrible person lol ♡♡♡♡♡

I'm a light user of medibles. Maybe 2-3 times per month. I'd rather have a few milligrams over a mixed drink any day.

My questions are, how is your funtion with marijuana after being sleeved/bypassed?

The same as before. I just chill at home, do housework, etc. after I take some. My goal is to relax, so "functioning" isn't really what I care about, lol.

Were you able to use it for pain relief/sleep aid directly after surgery?

Since I don't smoke it, I had to wait to use it. I used a tincture about 14 days post-op; I waited until my puree food stage just because.

Are you less tolerable? Do you get the "munchies" still?

Because I use edibles, it's very hard to find sugar-free stuff. I've scoured the Interwebs looking for where along the GI tract THC is absorbed; some say the stomach, some the intestines, others both.

In my opinion, with very limited research, the edibles don't have as intense or as long-lasting effect on me than before the sleeve gastrectomy. I never got the munchies from edibles.

Did you smoke it or take an alternative route?

I find the pleasure from orally ingesting it is superior to smoking it.

Nope you guys sure aren't the only ones. I used to be a stoner. Now for special occasions although I'm all about it's medical uses too.

I'm barely day nine post op though so the thought of smoking hasn't really crossed my mind.

If I had more choices here I'd just buy those little vials of thc oil and drop em on to my tongue.

I also enjoy edibles so I will take it into consideration to take it during the soft foods stage. The smokimg will most likely have to wait because I am nervous about coughing with a brand new sleeve but lets see if others reply who smoked right after. Thank you !! :)

Good idea! I need to find a dispensery near me that has it. I've never tried it.

I am in the exact same situation. I am 15 days post op and I smoked last night. I had not eaten dinner yet and actually I had eaten very little all day, other than Protein shakes and Water. So when I got home I had some Soup. I ate half the can way more than I have eaten yet. Today I was thinking I was ready to buy some to have at home but I didn't bc of the munchies. I want my surgery to be successful and it really frustrates me that smoking isn't really good for my diet. Hopefully that will change bc I miss smoking.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
