In brief: Marijuana

After any surgical procedure you should refrain from drug use that is not followed closely by a physician as you need to cognitively be able to report any problems with the surgery.
Rest and physical therapy as well as pain management is the key to recovery post operatively.

In brief: Bad Idea

I imagine you are taking narcotics as well.
Certainly would never recommend it.
