When doctors ask: "Do you smoke?"
Posted 26 February 2011 - 03:10 AM
Typically I say: "No, I don't smoke cigarettes", but I'm just wondering if when they ask you they mean any type of smoke inhalation?
I'm recovering from foot surgery and my doctor asked to make sure I didn't smoke, but he didn't say if he meant only cigarettes or otherwise. I'm not really sure if there's anything about smoking weed that would hinder my recovery (bone fusion in my foot).. but I'm not the most knowledgeable on the subject so any input would be appreciated

And I just felt weird telling a foot doctor that I smoke weed... it seemed very irrelevant at the time, but I want to recover asap.

I say yes to both, but looking back, I sorta regret doing it because I have a weird feeling this sorta info gets into health insurance companies hands...
Even more reason to worry with Obomacare and whatnot.
wait so you dont like health insurance companies or obamacare...
