I am having wound healing issues post surgery I am

Patient : I am having wound healing issues post surgery. I am a smoker. Yes i know that is horrible. My question is. Will using a vapor e- cigarette that contains ZERO% nicotine liquid still hinder healing issues? I repeat this liquid contains ZERO nicotine. The liquid consists of proplyene glycol, purified water, vegetable glycerin, and natural cinnamon flavor.
Doctor :   Hi. Thanks for your query and understanding that Nicotine can be one of the reasons for would healing issues post-surge ry. Vapor e- cigarette that contains ZERO% nicotine liquid will not hinder healing issues. There are other factors also which lead to delayed healing: Diabetes Anemia Hypoproteinemia Local factors. These also should be investigated and tried to be corrected
