I have no solid "yes/no" answer based on any facts, but having gotten all 4 of my tonsils out a couple years ago I think I can lend some good advice. The day my tonsils were removed I was too swollen & loopy to notice any real pain, but the 2-4 days following were bad. The meds I was given didn't make me loopy, but were only to lessen the swelling & relieve some pain, which weren't that effective. Since you'll essentially have 2 or 4 open sores in your mouth, I'd wait to smoke until you feel you can comfortably eat hard food. At first they recommend yogurt & slurpees, then once the sores begin to heal, harder foods are easier to bite down on. It's then I'd begin resuming smoking. And I don't think making pot brownies or firecrackers will affect the meds you're taking as long as it isn't within 4 hours of the operation.
