Hubby making me nervous because I smoke!!!!

Does anyone else smoke and worry because there are more risk during surgery for smokers? My husband is constantly reminding me the risk. I do plan to quit after my surgery but with nerves it will have to wait until afterwards. Just curious?

I do smoke and I get pnemonia about 1 time a year. Wow am I dumb. I even passed out 1 day post-op when the nurses tried to get me up to use the bathroom. (guess what.....day 2 I walked out of the hospital to have that **** smoke)
Looking back I wish I did stop smoking then cause I was in there 4 days and it would have been a great time to stop.
I would see if you can wear a stop smoking patch while in the hospital.

How much do you smoke? I smoke about a half a pack a day and had no problems. My DBF doesnt smoke and *hates* me smoking. I always smoke outside, never in the house. And he would fuss everytime I went out to do it. Just make sure you use your lung excersize thing. I found it harder to exhale after surgery but that went away pretty quick. Im going to quit someday too, but right now with the hormones raging, this probably isnt the time for me.
I hear they have a patch you can use while in the hospital so you wont loose your mind. I didnt use it, and about lost mine! (lol) But its something to consider. I didnt know about it until after I got home.

I smoke a pack a day and had no problems with surgery related to smoking. I know smoking is bad, but this wasn't the time for me to try to quit........too much stress. Then again, is there ever a good time? LOL. Not for me, I guess.

P.S. I had the works, uterus, tubes, and ovaries removed, and I was only in the hospital one night (because that was all my insurance would pay for).

Smoking is difficult to stop under the very best of circumstances. Adding the stress of surgery makes it harder by a long shot. I was smoking about a pack a day but when I made the decision to have my hyster. I stopped because after my D and C I had a lot of trouble breathing and suffered terribly post op. That was enough to scare me into quitting. Your DH is no doubt concerned about your recovery. Try to cut down as much as possible over the next couple of days. You will not regret it. The fear of not being able to breath well post op is more stress than waiting for the actual operation. Good Luck to you!!!! s

I smoke about 1/2 pack a day ( hubby hates it but is not nagging) I'm so sorry yours is,that probably makes you want to smoke more. I have had other surgeries and my smoking never was a problem. I already bought a box of patches to take to the hospital with me. DO ask the anestegologist though if you can apply one before you go under as they may not want you to do that. I'm still taking ciggy's with me though as I know that as soon as I am able to I will be going outside to smoke ! Now there's a good motivator to get me up and moving huh (LOL)
