For the marijuana users (medicinal or recreational) out there...how long after surgery did you smoke or ingest weed? Did you go with edibles instead? What has been your experience with marijuana use post-surgery?


*Not interested in responses on legalization/why it’s bad blah blah blah etc.*

I'm on Dronabinal / marinol for sleep issues, I was taking it the day I got home from surgery.

SWIM was smoking within a week or so of surgery, it was reported that pain and swelling was reduced and healing times seemed to be increased. It was noted that pain from coughing was controlled with pressing into the main incision line, either with the palm of the hand or a pillow. No negative side effects were noted, "munchies" were not an issue as per the user.

i smoked a week post op and i was fine but i vaped it so it was a bit easier. i haven’t had edibles yet cause i’m too nervous to try and i’m not sure how much i’d eat/if it’ll hit me different. i say do whatever feels comfortable, if you feel like you’re coughing a lot or have the munchies take another few days before you try again

I asked this to my team, not that I am using. They say if you use it without tobacco, it is fine. Either bake a (low fat, low sugar) cake with it or use a Water pipe.
