Re: Smoking and Surgery

I wasn't told either to not smoke before surgery. I smoked in the parking lot before surgery. Now, the anesthisiologist gave me a breathing treatment before surgery because I smoke. I had no probs during or after surgery. Came home the same day...lit one up as soon as I was out of he nurse's vision. Definitely not saying to smoke but it wasn't an issue either.
I have always healed faster than most people so I don't understand why they say it hinders it..maybe for other people but not for me. As I told one Dr, it seems like if you stump your toe nowadays, well, it was because you smoked. I need to quit and I will one day. Nasty habit.

Re: Smoking and Surgery

Thank you for asking, I am recovering nicely, not as bad (pain) that I expected. Try and keep yourself busy the waiting is really the hardest part.
