Smoking marijuana after a rhinoplasty

How long do I have to wait after having a rhinoplasty/septoplasty until I can resume smoking marijuana?

Smoking pot can potentially be a problem before surgery, because of respiratory effects with anesthesia.  Assuming there are no respiratory complications, my guess would be that after two weeks there should be no problems.  However I doubt that anyone has done any scientific work to confirm this.
