Using marijuana to manage pain/anxiety before procedure
Patient :I'm having minor surgery in-office to remove a vascular tumor on my knee. Because the tumor is so sensitive, they will have to numb around the area before removing it. Would it cause a problem if I were to eat or inhale a little THC (medical marijuana) prior to the procedure to help with pain and anxiety management?
Symptoms: Symptoms: small vascular tumor on patellar tendon, right knee causing intermittent and extreme pain.
