Ma maxilofacial surgery is scheduled for next mnth. But am worried about the surgery coz of ma smoking habit. I smoke marijuana daily. I dnt wanna disclose this to my surgeon.. Do smoking marijuana got any problem with surgery. If yes, pls tell me when or how many days before surgery do I need to quit marijuana use? Pls answer.

Smoking causes problems with anesthesia and can cause oxygen saturation problems. It would be better if you abstain from smoking completely for atleasit 2 weeks. Anyways you would have to go through a preanesthetic checkup which includes a chest xray also. If you have any respiratory complaints discuss that with your surgeon in advance.

Your mom may be suffering temporary amnesia from an emotional high, especially due to anger. You must discuss this with her doctor and see what s/he suggests. In the meantime have her talk to a counselor and continue with that for many months until he does better. She needs to learn how to handle her emotions and there are signs that her anger is too deeply pent up. This is not a good sign in the long run and she may have a severe outburst where she may not be in control of her actions and may inadvertently do something irreparable.

Continuous taking medicine it is always not good. Going any type of medicine it is also not good. Every medicine has its side effects. So better to do not depend on medicine. Anxiety and depression both are psychological disorders. You are already use medication. Now it is better to consult psychologist. No side effects in psychological counselling. It is always helps to overcome to come out of the present status. Behaviour therapy helps to you very much. It is permanent therapy. No side effects. It is always good for you. So better to consult psychologist. Be happy and be sociable. Be friendly with others. Ok best of luck.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Guests can be accommodated upto an extent. Beyond that it is always stressful. I suggest you to talk to your husband. Do not start quarrelling. Be patient. He will understand. Do not say anything about his sister. Just appraisal about the difficulties in a reasonable manner should work. Take care.

Is cigarette smoking is good for health or not.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum ,like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. 31st May is ?World No Tobacco Day? Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality. Cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 10% of all cardiac deaths.ncer or asthmatic lung diseases.

How to stop smoking.?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, the best method to quit smoking habit is to stop it outright with immediate efffect and pledge never to use it again. All others methods are almost useless. You can reduce the quantity and use nicotine lozenges or chewing gums to manage nicotine craving. But still the first method is much more beneficial. Please post a private question to me with more details. I will help you. Take care.

Dear Doctor, do we have to keep our mind always relaxed and happy to avoid many diseases like heart problem, diabetes?
Yes of-course be positive always and be normal in every circumstances.Surrender to god, have faith on him and you will free happy and relaxed. It has experienced by my self if you don't take tensions about anything and shift them to god then he will take care of you and you feel stress free and if you feel like this then you may not feel any physical problem. But it is also require that every person have to die who born in this earth so diseases are the reason for it some time. Except every thing as they happen in your life. May god bless you always.
