Idea for Smokers

I wanted to mention this to the ladies going into the hospital, and while I don't smoke, hopefully those that do, can add to this.
I had a room mate in the hopital who smoked, and had misery by the second day, she couldn't "just quit". The hospital is smoke-free, so you literally have to go outside to smoke! The nurses REFUSED to take her outdoors, so finally her doctor okayed a patch for her. Please, before you go in, get this arranged. If you can smoke, find out where, or have the patch arranged. The nurses resented spending time on patients like this, when they have a whole floor to look after. Some of the people on my floor were seriously ill, and the more you take care of yourself, the more willing they are to help you if you need it. Please find out with your doctor what can be arranged in advance, it makes your recovery easier too!

This is a very good point. I honestly didn't want to smoke until my 3rd day and then I was able to go outside and someone was there to take me (nurses usually won't take you) but my dr had already ordered a patch for me just in case. The nurse told me on the day of surgery I could have a patch if I needed it because I couldn't go outside yet but I didn't need it. It was nice to know it was there just in case. I know I should have just taken the patch and forgot the cigs altogether but I guess I just wasn't ready to quit yet.
