Do you:
Smoke: yes no _____Packs/day _____ # of YRS.
Past smoker? yes no _____Packs/day _____ # of YRS.
Drink alcohol: yes no _____ # drinks/week. Smoking and chewing tobacco is a leading risk factor in the development of degenerative disc disease. A disc is the shock absorber between the bones in your spine. When the disc starts to wear out it loses some of its ability to provide a "cushion" between bones. This allows for a greater risk of rupture. The discs already have a poor blood supply and when you smoke or use tobacco the blood vessels constrict (narrow) and the oxygen supply is lowered even more. Smokers also introduce carbon monoxide into the blood stream which can inhibit the discs' ability to absorb needed nutrients from the blood. This leads to dehydrated discs and eventually degenerative disc disease. If your spinal condition deteriorates enough to need a fusion surgery you will need to stop smoking or using tobacco. Nicotine is a bone toxin and can slow down new bone growth. The failure rate for many fusions can be 3 to 4 times higher for someone using tobacco. Many times you cannot have your surgery until you have been able to stop smoking or using tobacco. There are a number of different options available to assist in smoking or tobacco cessation. Please let us know when you are ready to quit using tobacco. If you are a current smoker, please initial and date here stating that you have read and understand the above smoking cessation recommendation:
