I had my HT this weekend, i am not a real smoker, maybe up to 5 cigarettes a week, sometimes 2 weeks none.


But when i am a little bit stressed i smoke some. Also short times before during and after the HT. All in all this weekend 6 cigarettes.


I did not knew that it is bad, and also the doc did not say anything about it.


Can these few cigarettes harm my grafts?


I of course stopped immediately when i heard about it.


I do a lot of sports too, so oxygen in my body should be high.


What do you think???

I can't believe your doc let you smoke during the HT. This is the first time i heard about it. One thing for sure, smoking does not help with the healing or growth of the grafts. To what extent, hard to say, but I don't think you should freak out about this since you are a light smoker anyway.


I am not a doctor. The opinions and comments are of my own.
