Brief Answer:
It is better if you do not smoke

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

The smoking weed is harmful as you know and the harms do not reduce following gall bladder surgery.

Similarly there is more harm after gall bladder surgery and there is risk of more bleeding and excitement leading to poor self care and post operative complications.

I feel it will be better if you can take this opportunity for deaddiction purpose of weed from your life.

I hope this helps you.
Thanks and regards.
