Cigars After Gastric Sleeve Surgery?



Recommended Posts

I like this topic. I don't smoke them a lot, but would like to partake in the enjoyment of a nice cigar and adult beverage.

I don't inhale, so not sure how this could really affect post op... thoughts? Anyone really know answer?

Just got some Gurka Widow Makers (nice name)...MY wife bought them.. LOL

Cigars and cigarettes aren't the same. People tend to smoke cigarettes at any time of the day for any reason. However I nice cigar isn't enjoyed as frequent. Plus there's more of an art/refinement to cigars, like whiskey.

I smoked ****** a few days after my surgery. It was enjoyable.

Moderation is always key.

Any update on this? I'm 15 days out of surgery and would like to smoke one for Father's Day. Did it cause nausea or anything?

No worries....

I'm 6 weeks after op and I love my cigars ~!

IMO: smoking seems to be alright (although doctors say that it can cause stomach ulcers),

the problem is drinking... realised I can no longer chug, but sip....

So a nice Cohiba Robusto with a nice glass of whiskey from the low lands of Scotland....

what can I say... Life couldnt be better

I miss my Friday and Saturday night cigars with a nice glass of whiskey (or 3), actually I miss the whiskey that goes with it. Now that I'm home all day I find myself having about 1 - 2 cigars a day while relaxing on my balcony.

I haven't noticed any ill effects as I maintain my liquids, Protein and I walk 3-4 miles daily

That sounds so good. I'm 10 days out so the whiskey is out i guess but I'm really wanting a cigar.

        I've been a member since 2008, but just now decided to go ahead with surgery. Barely getting started 😁

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
