How often have you been vaping and what sort of products have you used mostly? Also, do you have a history of cigarette use?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No cigarette use and not too bad but I hit it usually when I’m stressed which is a lot since it’s my first year in college

With vaping the biggest issue is the amount of mucous that builds up deep in the lungs and less worry as far as damage to the alveoli. So in order to full recover you likely would need only about 6 months of not vaping. I would say less time if you're otherwise young and quite healthy.

There should be no permanent damage because you haven't used it long enough.

since I’m young and healthy how long should I expect to wait until I feel like my lungs are better
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

I would say 3 months, tops.

Ok thank you minimum what would be the timeline if things go 100% well
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

Really hard to say without examining you but I would say within about 6 weeks.

Ok is there anything I can take or do to help speed up the process
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

There isn't anything I would recommend except for making sure that if you have any acid reflux or sinus problems that you address those because secretions from your stomach or sinuses can make your throat and lungs worse.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
