User avatar Hello,
No, the risks are not too great. You should just take care to not use anything from here on out without your doctor's approval. Often the risks are associated with the amount of use so the more you use, the greater the risk, but I would not expect any problem from your limited use. It would definitely not be cause for termination.

Best wishes.
