I had a vats blebectomy and pleurodesis surgery. Would it be possible to smoke marijuana on occasion through a vape?
Not good to smoke. It's never "good" to smoke anything. I would think after having extensive lung surgery like you had, it would be best to never smoke anything and risk any damage to the lungs.
No. Sorry, but I do not advise marijuana for anybody.
As above. I agree with other doctors , if u want to be healthy u should avoid all illicit drug use.
Bad choice. Risk factors for primary and secondary spontaneous pneumothorax (sp) include: smoking (including marijuana). Lung inflammation is also thought to be important. Smokers have increased numbers of inflammatory cells. Studies in patients show degree of inflammation correlates with the extent of emphysematouslike changes (elcs).
