Any vapors out there?



Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone still vapes after surgery? Do you use nicotine? How long did you wait after surgery to start again?

Vaping is just as bad as smoking. Nicotine is extremely dangerous to use after surgery. I wish you would consider quitting!!

You could get an ulcer for sure and trust me you don’t want that.

Plus vaping- it’s just not sexy.

I tried it without nicotine it was absolutely disgusting to me. I sold all my mods and got rid of everything. I don’t feel the need to smoke or vape at all. It’s how you feel. And if someone who has never vaped before tells you to quit just ignore it. But nicotine is extremely dangerous to use after surgery.

It can cause an ulcer. And ulcers are very painful and most of the time will need surgery to remove

I do! I started up again just a few days after surgery. Probably not the best idea, but I'm at 0-3mg.

I've quit smoking by Vaping for two and a half months now and have been slowly trying to wean myself onto 0mg nicotine. The nicotine is bad for you as it affects blood circulation therefor makes it harder for the wound to heal. Vaping is no way near as bad as smoking and people who say it is isn't educated on them enough, so if you used to be a smoker congratulations on making the switch.

Surgery due January 10th 2018

Just want to say first, no judgements here, I smoked. Then went to vaping 4 yrs ago... Vaped for 3 yrs. When I decided to have surgery I quit vaping. Just because they said they will test you all the up to surgery date for nicotene and would not do surgery if they found nicotine. I wanted surgery more than nicotene. Its hard but I completely understand and yes vaping is healthier than smoking . we all have it in our minds if we smoke we won't gain weight well lol we are all here having surgery because we did gain weight lol so don't think that you have to go back to smoking to keep it off ....they told us life change that meant eating right...exercise....not smoking ..ect......becoming that new you. What a reward to give yourself!!!!!!!

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.  
       
      Thanks

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      Breathe baby breathe
      Where does it go?
      Some of the water produced as the body consumes fat exits in the usual way, through your urine and sweat. But a 2014 study in the British Medical Journal found that most of the byproducts of fat (including all that carbon dioxide) leaves the body through the respiratory system.
      Yep, you read that right. You breathe out the byproducts of most of the fat that you burn, the CO2 from that process mingling with the CO2 produced by your lungs as they process oxygen. It's something to think about while you hit the gym or walk on a track: getting rid of fat can be exhausting, but it's as natural as breathing.
