Smoking after septoplasty

Smoking after a nasal surgery is generally not a good idea as it can affect the healing process.  I would recommend that you ask your surgeon about this.

Septoplasty Questions

Dear dsamplina, I would suggest that you ask your surgeon what his/her policy is regarding smoking post surgery and discuss the amount of marijuana you smoke and if it is for medicinal purposes and then see if your surgeon gives you clearance for that. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
