Is it ok to vape after surgery?



Recommended Posts

I vaped until literally 1 hour before surgery. However, I didn't start vaping again until 2 days after surgery.

With or without nicotine ?

Jessjames, I was told it was specifically the nicotine because of the impacts to healing, blood pressure, etc. Doing some quick research, there is some speculation that other components of cigarette smoke may be more impactful to healing than the nicotine itself.

Long story short, ask your surgical team what they require! :)

Honestly, every person I've asked has had a different opinion/answer and vaping really is a new thing so nobody seems to be too educated on exactly what you can and can't do with it. I'm on your side though, since I got my surgery date (two weeks ago) I've been on zero nicotine vaping and have found it much easier than I had thought! Surgery next they'd day (26th) and I can't wait!!

My surgeon required that patients quit nicotine at least 6 months before surgery, and preferably stayed off it afterward. I vaped on the way to the hospital with my 0mg juice, and haven't switched back to nicotine at all. I'm 11 days post op and basically vape for the habit, and the flavour.

I'm sure that you can vape after the surgery, because it's not a tobacco. But to be honest, I advise you to gave up vaping and smoking in general. For example I spent a lot of money on it and ruined my health. I switched to CBD oils. After a hard day's work, I add a few drops to the Water and drink it before going to bed. I ordered from this store knockoutcbd.com . After 3 weeks, I got rid of insomnia and nervousness. I advise you to switch to these oils, because it is delicious and not harmful :)

It's an old thread you picked up on, but for anyone pondering the same question....

This article is about before surgery, but there is enough in there to make me think you'd need a good space of time following surgery before taking up vaping again. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-6290933/Vaping-increases-risk-surgery-complications.html

But if you do a google search on vaping after surgery and/or anesthesia you will find plenty of articles for after surgery
