Hi, how long did people wait to smoke after surgery? Wether it be hookah, cigarettes or marijuana? :-)

I AM IN NO WAY SAYING YOU SHOULD DO THIS AND IF ANYONE JUDGES ME OR HAS SOMETHING TO SAY, I PROMISE YOU I DONT CARE.

With that being said yes i am a POTHEAD and i smoked the day i came home from the hospital. I dont get higher or anything like that because of the surgery. All is the same when it comes to smoking weed for me. Just my honest real life truth. Its what i did and im fine and doing well loving life. lol but i would say stay off the cigs. Stuff is terrible for you!! lolol

I smoked h ookah a week post-op. No problems except I felt a little guilty for some reason. Didn't get approval from dr or anyone but...I'm still here haha. Exactly one month out now and still doing great. So 🤷‍♀️ but that's also just me.

Seriously I literally needed an answer for this because boyyyyy I have been sober from my bong for 3 months and just looking at her so lonely is hurting my heart lmfao I think I should definitely ask my surgeon

I'm right there with you Jake. Smoked my bowl as soon as I got home from the hospital. The only issue I'm having is having to mentally take control of the munchies lol... Any tips?

Yah, I'd be scared of the munchies, too. I don't like to smoke and prefer edibles, but all the ones I have are from pre-surgery and they have sugar in them since they are gummies. I'm afraid to eat them because I don't wanna dump! That would be a hell of a bummer, man...

As many Keto dieters as there are, there must be some low carb edibles.

I think some places sell THC infused olive oils if you wanted to try to make something less sugary than the premade stuff

I was actually going to ask my doctor about this, as I used to take it for foot pain. I assume it might be tough on our pouches though, similar to an Nsaid maybe? I'm only 6 weeks out from surgery so I don't plan on trying it out yet but maybe down the road so I'm curious if anyone has experience. As for the effects I'm sure they're the same if you got the sleeve not sure though with rny

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
