Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Though there is no definitive evidence to say that marijuana delays or worsens wound healing
, still a few facts need consideration. If you are smoking
marijuana, then definitely smoking can delay wound healing. Also, there is also a possibility of contaminants in the marijuana which can be potentially bad for your wound healing.
So, in my opinion, it is better to avoid marijuana during this period. If you are unconfortable with precocets, then ask your doctor for a non-opioid analgesic
- there are plenty of safe and effective ones available.
Wish you all the best.
