Consult Psychiatrist: Withdrawal symptoms, may take more than 2 weeks to go away. Discuss with your Psychiatrist. Gradual withdrawal is more helpful than sudden discontinuation. Return of depression, should also be considered as a withdrawal symptom.

Consult PCP: Excess upper intestinal gas may be due to swallowing more than usual amount of air, while eating, drinking or chewing gum and it is a normal effect of bacteria on food, we eat. Bacterial overgrowth also leads to intestinal gas and cause bloating, belching and abdominal or stomach discomfort. Consult your PCP, and he/ she may refer you to Gastroenterologist.

D/w your surgeon: Marijuana itself has very little effect on wound healing or recovery after surgery. Smoking, however, decreases lung function and can interfere with wound healing. Most experts suggest cessation of smoking for at least four weeks before surgery. Marijuana is illegal and may lead to dependency, mood changes and psychosis. Will not recommend to use Marijuana post surgery.
