Our expert says:
I promise I won't preach to you! I am guessing that you are taking marijuana - it won't affect the tissue healing like tobacco smoke but it may suppress immunity somewhat which could increase your risk of post operative infection ( so keep your wounds clean and take it slow after the op) , it may even help with post operative pain and nausea. I think you should try not to smoke within 12 hours before anaesthesia as it may interfere with the anaesthetic drug causing hallucinations or neurological side effects. You can discuss this with the anaesthetist too if he is approachable?
