Default Got a question for all of you...

I just went through surgery yesterday, and had all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. It sucks big time since I can't eat all the foods I want and my face is a little swollen. I feel much beter than yesterday. The prescription they gave me really works at eliminating the pain completely. And, I've stoped bleeding. If I bleed, it's only a couple of drops or so but it's mostly gone. Now, I was wondering, would you consider it safe to smoke hookah?

I just bought a tub of Al-Amir Mixed Fruit (just for the hell of it, since I like it and miss it) and I'm dying to smoke it. It's my favorite flavor of the Al-Amir line. Anyhow, I don't want to get an infection in my cuts. Right now they're stiched up pretty good, but I'm worried that maybe smoking might cause an infection. But, at the same time, if I'm able to eat foods without getting an infection, then I guess it shouldn't be different for smoking right?

I'm not sure of what to do guys, help...

well since hookah has a lot of sugar and smoke will more than likley agitate your well wounds i wouldnt risk it this early in the game. a few days later and i would have said go for it but its best to not to but then again people who smoke ciggies will still smoke so why not.

I've heard you can get dry socket (the gum gets dry and then your left with a big hole) and you can also get an infection

The action of drawing smoke could hurt your stitches as well. Just wait bro! Better safe than sorry.

That is what I was thinking, the suction action. Probably best not to drink from a straw either? Don't they tell you not to do that stuff?

hmmm, thanks for the quick replies guys/gals! It shows how the members around here truly care for others. That dry socket stuff doesn't sound like fun. I never thought that could happen by smoking. You guys are right, I should hold off until they take the stiches out. 5 days won't kill me. Once again, I appreciate the quick replies, thank you...

Dry sockets aren't good. Just hold off and fight the craving for a little while longer.

NO NO NO NO NO NO! I asked my doctor this question, and he said the smoke can irritate and infect your healing open wounds and cause serious damage. Plus you are already on painkillers... you most likely don't need any Nicotine in your system bro. . Give it 1 week, that's what i was told.

Yup, that's what they told me when I got all my wisdom teeth taken out at once! Gawd that was the most painful thing I've ever gone through!

They used numbing shots (the operation didn't suck) but it was after the surgery when it was horrible! I was in pain for like over a week

Yeah dude for sho wait man. Most of the time the doctor will discourage you to not do any sucking at all I know that does not sound good but yeah. Your dry sockets could come out dude and you will be wrecked for at least a few days smoking is not worth the pain you WILL experience.
