    Bergster,

    happy to see your recovery is successful. and that you have managed to drop to 0 nic.

    no one can possibly answer your initial questions as to potential effects of vaping on your cancer - or if modifying it by avoiding certain mods etc would help.

    from a person with a bit of a health background - theoretically anything that causes agitation/damage to cancer (or even 'normal') cells has the potential to cause an increase in mutation/cancerous cells. nicotine is definitely something that might be able to do this. that being said theres no research - and my thoughts are just theories based on a small amount of pathology I learned in school. This is probably why your specialists wouldn't comment on it - any comments on their part would simply be an educated opinion - not anything that should be given as medical advice.

    my own humble opinion would be to take a similar track to what you have been doing.

    again - very glad your treatments have been successful - and that you yourself have been part of that success in taking ownership of your diagnosis and your health.

    I am very happy to report that the cancer is GONE!
    You just made my day brother, Best news I heard in months.

    I go every six month to one Doctor and another once a year now going on four years now.

    Except for the outcome BERGSTER my story is your story.

    My biopsy should just a 3 cell thickness from breaking through to what you had.

    Been vaping since Jan 2014 and no cig since 1st day of vaping.,

    Just got over Still another literal near death illness and survived with ZERO residual damage.

    Want to start vaping but family in REALLY strong anti vaping mode right now.

    During my recent 2week hospital stay,vaping was accepted in hospital by Medical staff.

    Family confiscated my Vape travel kit and I haven't seen it since week of Easter.

    So screw'em, I pulled the trigger and ordered high end Provari mini Stainless Steel Polish

    Just arrived 2 days ago.

    Now can't get 'Seal of approval' from Family until team of specialists ALL give

    final OK on state of my health.

    So I now hafta see GP Doc just because he ℅-ordinates my Team of new best friends... ENT for biopsy

    follow up, A Cardio for stress test, Neuro

    for MRI and Podiatrist for ingrown toe nail ( being facetious on that one).

    MY Challange is to get 4 Specialist to agree that vaping non nic flavor only is Ok for me.

    I will win this seemingly up hill battle ONLY BECAUSE ALL THESE LEARNED PEOPLE HAVE NOT DONE THEIR HOMEWORK.

    The education battle NEVER ends, does it?..

    Wish me God speed and good luck.

    Arty, please keep us posted. Stay positive and you'll get through this no sweat!

    Sorry to hear they took your vape gear away. Family sure can be a real pain in the ... sometimes huh? During my treatment and healing, I was at times pretty grouchy because I felt like my family was trying to coddle me. I didn't like the extra attention and I'm stubborn as a mule and sounds like you are too. Just try and realize that they love you dearly and want to help you in any way they can on your road to recovery. Having that support group can really help you get through the tough times.

    Good luck to you sir and fight the good fight!

    First off, to Bergster; Congrats! Knew you could do it.

    And to Arty; next time the family gives you grief on vaping 0 mg, inform them if they don't let up you're going out to buy a pack of smokes because they're driving you nuts. That should do it.
