Lighting up can bring you down in colorectal surgery

The first large study to focus specifically on the effects of smoking after colorectal surgery found that smoking boosts the risk of complications like infection and pneumonia after some of the most common colorectal procedures, such as surgery for colon cancer or inflammatory bowel disease. Lighting up also increases a patient’s risk of death after surgery compared with patients who have never smoked.
