Not sure what your medical question is here.
The doctor has no reason or right to order a tox screen [drug testing] without your permission.
In addition, you should never keep any information of drugs being used from a surgeon.
This might interfere with the results of anesthesia.
This is not something you keep to yourself.
your surgeon must know all drugs that you use, in order to insure a safe surgery.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

A surgeon cannot specifically test for THC. However, as you know, before any surgery, you have to go to "pre-op" testing and you would be asked to complete questionnaire and disclose all medications that you are on including any supplements that you are taking to ensure that these medications and supplements will not adversely affect your surgery. For your safety, you must make full disclosures on the questionnaire and on any interview you have with the surgeon's or the hospital's staff. Otherwise, you would be jeopardizing your life.
