Welcome to XXXXXXX

Smoking can cause irritation to trachea and bronchi of your lung and you will be more prone to respiratory tract infections.

Irritation and infection may stimulate your cough center and coughing can cause problems for a couple of days after operation.

Smoking will have bad effect on healing process also.

Thus in my opinion you should avoid smoking weed.
