How can Marijuana be removed from the body?

Hi I m having a surgical abortion in 5 days. When I called to make the appointment I was told no street drugs, which I assume marijuana counts,1 week prior to the surgery. I don t know that they actually put you under anesthesia for the surgery at this place as the website says they give you drugs to help relax you and make you more comfortable during the procedure. I smoke marijuana almost daily because it s really been the only thing to help with my morning sickness and it helps me when I can t stand the thought of food without vomiting but my stomach hurts from being hungry so it gives me my appetite as well. So will I be okay if I stop smoking just 1 or 2 days before?

Hello,

The marijuana clearance will rely upon the liquids intake and no further consumption of the same.

I recommend to stop the same before at least 72 hours of the procedure for best anesthesia results and recovery.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
