Smoking 1 month after surgery



Recommended Posts

I smoked for a long time. This is my second time quitting. This time around I quit to do my bypass. But now after a month with stress etc I wanna smoke. Is that ok. I did have a cigarette.

You know the answer. Smoking is never good at any stage. If you really want to get healthy you need to give it up permanently.Dont let that 1 cigarette become the first of many

I spent years with horrendous acid reflux... smoking causes acid reflux, Barrett’s esophagus and ulcers... it’s two fold for WLS patients... please dont!!

I've never smoked, but I heard the surgeon talking about how important it is to stop smoking in order to have WLS, so I assume it's a big deal. Please try to quit smoking and good luck with your WLS journey.

I did the surgery already in April. But when I stressed before smoking helped. I did have 3 cigarettes. 2 from my mom and one from a cousin. I didn’t buy anything’. Is there any smokers out there. That did wls

I know it's hard, but PLEASE don't smoke! You just went through hell to get healthy, don't sabotage your own efforts!

I know it's difficult to give up if you've been addicted but every bad effect from smoking is even worse for WLS patients. Please, for the sake of your health that you went through your surgery to improve, do everything you can to stop smoking permanently. Do not let yourself believe that it's okay to continue or start smoking again.

We all know smoking is bad and you should not ever do it, but this is your life and YOU need to decide if the pleasure you get from smoking is worth the cost of your overall health.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
