Can I Smoke Marijuana After Gastric Bypass?

If Marijuana does not induce hunger for me, can i vaporize (with heat rather than flame) it to help with nausea? Or will it have similar effects as cigarettes do on the pouch, such as ulcers?

We always recommend to not smoke anything after gastric bypass surgery because it can lead to ulcers.  Also marijuana is illegal and does increase appetite so I would not recommend it.
