Patient :Ok, I had surgery on my broken tibia and fibula about 8 days ago. I am a daily Cigarette and Marijuana smoker. After surgery I stopped smoking marijuana and severely cut back on my cigarette intake for 8 days. I have read that weed can affect the growth of bone around titanium implants but i am no longer in pain and things seem to be healing up nicely. can I smoke some marijuana again?
Symptoms: Broken ankle. Surgery performed with titanium implant installation.
