Is pot smoking possible while having 2 stents?

Just had 2 stents put in right coronary that was 98% clogged. Thank god it was discovered because I did a general check up, and the stress test came with an inconclusive result and an Angiotac was performed. no damage to the heart it was programmed just in time. I quit smoking cigarrettes but I am wondering if I can smoke pot a couple of times a week
