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.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
