Hello, I had a Septoplasty 5 days ago which was a success. I have been using saline dips, antibiotics and taking it very easy. My nose feels much better and I have both nostrils open and nearly no swelling. Tonight my family Is having a party and although I will not be drinking (due to painkillers), I think it likely I will have a single cigarette, given how hard it is for me to avoid temptation. I have read much on the dangers of smoking after septoplasty and am fully aware of the increased healing times and possible tissue damage. However, in your opinion, will 1 (yes I mean just 1) cigarette, make any difference? I do not plan to have a cigarette again after this evening for at least one week. Thankyou very much in advance!
