Thread: Marijuana and anesthetic

  1. #1

    Default Marijuana and anesthetic

    Hi All,

    Just wondering if any of the smart Mybb members will have any hands on or any knowledge about such topic.

    Basically I smoke MJ daily, for the last 7 years, and like around 2 joints worth everyday. So my consumption is quite alot. I went to a surgeon yesterday to be told my surgery is on thursday, A long outstanding procedure that has been needed for quite some time. So my question is, Will smoking have any negative effects on the general anesthetic? I obviously plan not to smoke for today and tomorrow and obviously not on thursday, is this enough time to stop for it?

    Thanks

    No. I wouldn't recommend going in stoned though but if you're stopping already you're fine.

    It shouldn't make any difference but your question reminded me of a cool story I read about Andre the Giant:

    The time arrived, and the anesthesiologist was frantic. He had never put a person of Andre’s size under the gas before and had no idea how much to use. Various experts were brought in but no solution presented itself until one of the doctors asked Andre if he was a drinker. Andre responded that, yes, he’d been known to tip a glass from time to time. The doctor then wanted to know how much Andre drank and how much it took to get him drunk.

    “Well,” rumbled the Giant, “It usually takes two liters of vodka just to make me feel warm inside.”

    And thus was a solution found. The gas-passer was able to extrapolate a correct mixture for Andre by analyzing his alcohol intake. It was a medical breakthrough, and the system is still used to this day.

    thanks for all the responses, ok cool, well my initial thinking has basically been confirmed, weed is generally harmless and as long as I don't go into the surgery stoned I should be ok, On top of that I am taking a 2 day hiatus from smoking so everything should be fine

    I'm not about to dish out advice to someone who is about to have surgery - A doctor would be the correct person to query about such a thing.

    I dont understand why you would smoke the day, day before or even the week before a procedure.
    Secondly, why you wouldnt tell your surgeon or anesthetist.

    Just tell the doc when you smoked a joint. Not like he will really care.

    Best tell the doctors truthfully how much MJ you smoke. That way they'll be prepared for anything unusual during the op. The medics don't care and there's also doctor/patient confidentiality.
