Smoking cannabis after scaphoid non-union surgery. It involved a bone graft from my pelvis and a pin to secure it together. Is weed bad for healing?

In brief: Not recommended

It is possible that marijuana could help some of the pain post op but it is not something i would really recommend to enhance healing.

In brief: Not bad for healing

Although, weed is not bad for healing after surgery, i would not recommend for the reason of addiction and other consequences.
It's been shown to significantly weaken one's mental capacity and negatively affect the liver.
