Not really: It's going to diminish lung function a bit, and thereby indirectly affect healing and overall health, but it does not have the vasoconstrictive effect of tobacco, so not as bad.

THC: I would not advise it, due to interference with healing from compromising your respiratory functions.

occasional recreational use would not interfere with healing, just B sure U R in a state in the USA allows it or México, but beware of habitual use.

Depends on where you: Live. Medically I do not see major problem with this. The beneficial effects of marijuana in pain management have been adequately documented and chances are you're up on your feet and doing better by using it. Having said that however i would not advocate the use it in any state in which it is illegal. That could result in a prison sentence. Isn't diversity a beautiful thing?

You should be better: Would return to see the doctor who performed the surgery, if you have not in a while. That is the necessary first step.

Hip clunking: Clunking should not really be present after 3 months. Check with your doctor and get new xrays done or a ct scan to evaluate the components.
