Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

Electronic cigarettes still contains nicotine, that is advised against during this period, as this can hinder the activity of the medication given to you.

If you really wish to have the best results from the medication (gel) provided to you and avoid surgery, I would advise against the use of the electronic cigarette in addition to all smoking.

But, yes it is considered slightly safer than smoking tobacco in your specific case to avoid complications.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications at: . I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
