Can smoking cigarrettes hurt/slow the bodies ability to heal broken bones?

absoutely. a smoker who smokes a pack a day can expect at least two to four weeks more to heal from a broken bone than a non-smoker.

Yep... short term and long term smoking effect your bodies ability to heal... broken bones included...

your body is trying to heal your lungs and air ways.. not to mention attacking the nicotine in your blood....instead of healing

well I dont think that the embalming fluid that they contain along with many many other lethal ingredients will help your bones

basically cigarettes hurt you period.

Poor healing. Some hand or wrist fractures — such as scaphoid fractures — may be tougher to heal because of poor blood supply to this area of your body.
Smoking cigarettes is also a risk factor for poor healing of fractures. If you smoke, consider stopping to give yourself the best chance of healing.

Of course. Anyone who smokes has a weaker ability to heal. Thats why they are not good for you.

Yes, definitely.

Cigarettes are bad for you.... point blank.

Oh yes
Cigarettes decrease your ability to obtain and use oxygen properly.
And without oxygen, your cells starve and cannot function properly.
The good news is, when you quit smoking your body can usually start working properly again. However, the longer you smoke the less chance of that.

So they say, It is proven that smokers are less likely to be happy with the results, but let me tell you this from recent personal experience........

I smoked between 10-20 cigarettes a day whilst in plaster for my broken wrist, my doctor told me I can smoke if I MUST, well lets face it 6 weeks in plaster you ant really do much else considering 9 times out of 10 I smoke out of boredom (the devil makes work for idle hands and all), anyway, the doctors in the fracture clinic were VERY happy with the healing of my bone, it healed almost as good as new considering I shattered my radius into pieces and some parts to dust (REALLY bad break)

So my point is I did it and I healed better than expected in plaster for 7 weeks, im not saying that is how it goes for everyone but it is always nice to hear things from experience as opposed to textbook stuff. As with anything medical it all depends on the person and how YOUR body reacts.

My advice to you is if you can and I know its hard cut down or stop all together, however if you don't then I highly doubt it will majorly effect you, all doctors say about smoking is that you will be less happy with the results and it may take a little longer THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOUR BONE WONT FUSE like people are probably telling you, trust me I did a lot of research being a smoker and all, all it is is that smoking will restrict the amount of oxygen getting to the injured area, it will not stop your body doing what it does naturally and that is heal.
