Smoking wax/weed post surgery

Recommended Posts

Does anyone smoke post surgery, preferably wax. It seems to help after I eat if I'm having any discomfort, and I havnt gotten the munchies since surgery thank god. Plus I have more will power to give in to the food, I'm too excited to keep losing weight !

I don’t smoke, but I’ve had cbd/thc gummies-I used them for pain after my plastic surgery. No issues, no munchies. They just helped with the pain and made me sleepy which was exactly what I needed.

I wouldn't smoke after surgery. Just due to coughing and it putting the risk of damaging your suture/staples/incisions inside and out. Try doing tinctures for now or if you want to smoke, just dont inhale deeply or hold it in long enough to make you cough. One thing I have found that works EXTREMELY well is Delta8 CBD vape. No cough. Takes just a little. Get it at most any vape shop and same effects. They do cause munchies though. So watch out for that.

Congrats! Thats amazing I'm happy for you! I've been thinking about skin removal surgery for years! lol just gotta lose all the weight one and for all. I want to lose about 160lbs. If you don't mind me asking , was your skin surgery covered under insurance or did you pay out of pocket ? because i have a surgeon in mind, but would rather not pay out of pocket you know ?

You're very welcome. Just don't do edibles of any kind if it's post WLS. But if it's post skin removal, edibles are good to go. But listen to your body and take it easy. And if you do smoke, hold a pillow over your tummy in case you do need to cough...it helps. Just be gentle. THC and even delta 8 is a lot more effective than the opioids they prescribe. My surgeon gave me norco 5's post RNY. A week's worth. Was like taking tylenol. They did nothing for the pain. But herbal "meds" worked like a charm. Gotta 💘 mother nature.

I didn’t even try to get my insurance to pay. Their criteria is you need a year of documentation of failed treatment for skin infections/rashes before they’ll pay. I had none of that.

Prices vary wildly around the country. For what I had done I would have paid $30,000-$40,000 in Seattle. I found an excellent surgeon in Miami and paid $16,000. Even with travel expenses it was far cheaper.
