Is smoking marijuana with gastritis harmful?

hi, iv had gastritis for 6 days now. this is the first time i have ever been diagnosed with such a problem. i did a fasting for 4 days. i was vomiting for 4 days too. i have not vomited for 2 days. just wanted to know if it will be ok to smoke a very small marijuana joint. with or without backy i dont know what would be the best could you please advise me. before you do ill explain my medical history. 8 weeks and 3 dqays ago i was hit by a mini bus sending me 75 feet. breaking my frontal lobe, both eye brows which my right one went up into my brain causing a bleed which i had to have brain surgery to stop the bleed. i also broke 8 ribs my right shoulder blade, knee, and torn all my ligaments on my left knee. i also broke my left arm just above the elbow aswell as chipping my funny bone off and fracturing the joint in my elbow causing me to have to get a screw into it. also i have multiple facial fractures. the reason for the marijuana is for the pain well it was for the pain of my accident but the past 6 days i was diagnosed with gastritis and havent had any marijuana since but the pain is really bad from my accident still and i have no pain killers the only thing which relieved pain was a small joint each night which helped me get to sleep. could you please let me know if smoking marijuana with gastritis will be harmful please. thanks you very much, andy.

hi dear,
taking marijuana with gastritis harmful as all the substance mostly cause gastritis and already you have gastritis problem. also you have history of accident which cause brain injury and marijuana has brain depressant property and also addiction property so keep away from it.
also you can ask your doctor for the same whom you are on treatment.
consult also psychiatrist if you are already taking in past
Thank you.
