    As for bariatric surgery, I think your best bet would be to have a chat with your doctor or surgeon. They'll be able to give you the most accurate information based on your specific situation. From what I've heard, vaping and certain substances can potentially impact the amount of sedation needed during surgery. My doctor allowed a bong for smoking when I was about to have my surgery.

    Have you discussed the potential impact of marijuana use, including vaping and other substances, on the sedation required during bariatric surgery with your doctor or surgeon? Additionally, did you experience any specific guidelines or precautions related to marijuana consumption in the period leading up to your surgery, and how did it affect your overall experience?

    It's essential to prioritize your health and well-being, especially when considering the impact of marijuana use on medical procedures. For those who've undergone bariatric surgery, what insights or advice would you share regarding discussions with healthcare professionals about marijuana consumption before surgery?

    Sheency, since you've recently had a gastric sleeve procedure, could you shed light on any specific considerations or recommendations your doctor provided regarding marijuana use and its potential effects on the surgical process?

    Seeking advice from medical professionals is key when it comes to understanding how marijuana use may affect medical procedures. I remember when a friend of mine was preparing for surgery and had questions about medical cannabis interactions.
