    well... my dentist got sick on the day of my pre surgery consultation and instead rescheduled it 15 min before my surgery. he sent me a packet with instructions on prepping for the surgery and it arrived 2 days before the surgery. in the packet this one pamphlet says to not use any recreational drugs prior to surgery.

    does this mean weed?

    u think i will be okay if i smoked multiple times before the surgery within taht week?

    i dunno whether i should tell my doctor or not...

    i am 21 and in decent health but i smoke weed like everyday

    i hope i dont die or become a vegetable while under the knife!

    surgery is in 12 hours and i have only half a bowl today, will i live should i reschedule my appointment and go another week sober? is smoking weed really that big of a deal? pre surgery

    You'll be fine, just don't smoke AFTER surgery. You don't want to get a dry socket.

    I just had surgery on my broken front tooth, we're preparing it for an implant.
    I chewed marijuana right after surgery, and it helped. You can read about it here in more detail, the first paragraph. http://420.marijuana.com/showthread.php?t=30617

    You will only get dry socket if you somehow manage to wash the blood away from your hole. The blood blocks the pain receptors, wash it away and you get dry socket. Chewing herb will thicken your saliva, and your blood. Its good to do while your waiting for your hydrocodies to kick in.

    What if you inhale through your nose? If I take it in slow and exhale out of my nose will I still take the risk of getting dry socket?

    Well.. this is like anesthesia awareness.. they warn people not to take drugs before hand because it will reduce the effects of the stuff they give you to knock you out (whatever it's called). I doubt this relates to marijuana.
    If you honestly want to know just ask your doctor. That's the safest way. They will probably tell you no and I'd still smoke anyway. Wisdom teeth removal isn't that huge of a deal anyway so any effects would be minimal. Don't smoke for a few days after though.. dry sockets :(

    I smoked about 2 hours after my surgery with no problem, BUT the surgeon said that i had one of the easiest removals that he ever had. I would take it slow and avoid suction. Suction is what gets you on the dry sockets. See if you can find a way to get the smoke in your lungs without any suction. Smoking through your nose will work, but it will sting pretty bad. Keep hydrated too, nothing is worse than cotton mouth on top of all the wisdom teeth stuff.

    First of all, you'll be fine with smoking right before surgery, never mind the week prior. Second, do not, whatever you do, create suction in your mouth for a few days after the surgery. Even if you don't feel any pain, do not smoke. I saw my dad go through the most excruciating month of his life waiting for his dry sockets to heal. He smoked maybe 5 cigarettes during the healing process and it caused him much more trouble than those 5 cigarettes were worth. Likewise, smoking just once could cause you a few weeks of unimaginable discomfort. I refrained from any type of smoking for a week after my surgery. After that, I was all set.

    I am having dental surgery on Wed the 14th of March and obviously i'll be under anaesthesia for 2 hours. They tell me not to smoke cigarettes for 48 hours! i'm a smoker and i've snuck a cigarette when I desperatly needed it, does anyone knnow if this could be dangerous at all or what the side affects would be?
