Q&A: SMOKING MARIJUANA AFTER BREAST AUGMENTATION?


"I have quit smoking for two weeks now and just had my surgery today. I was wondering when its safe to start smoking again without risking C.C.? Obviously, you guys are going to say smoking is bad and this is a good time to quit but it truly helps with my anxiety and I’d rather smoke this than take xanex or anything other anxiety medicine. It’s a natural way to lower my anxiety. I was thinking about 3 weeks after, what do you guys prefer? I really do not want to get C.C.! Thanks <3"
