Re: When to quit smoking before sx

I have been slowly trying to ween myself off ciggies also. I had a surgery date of Dec 26th (that was later canceled) and up to that point I had cut down from nearly 2 packs a day to half a pack. Hubby and I ordered the E Ciggies and that helped me cut down to 6/8 real ciggies a day....even down to 4 a day at one point. But as my Dr. appointment for a second opinion on my hysterectomy approaches on Monday the 9th I notice my real ciggie intake going up again. I am struggling so much harder than my hubby with the E ciggies, but they have been more of a help than patches/gum/pills that I have tried in the past. Where do I sign up to join the stop smoking buddy list?

Re: When to quit smoking before sx

When my ex had surgery they slapped a nic patch on him since he was unable to go outside to smoke.

Honestly, if I still smoked I wouldn't have wanted one after surgery. I was very nauseous for the first few days.

Re: When to quit smoking before sx

Yes I find myself smoking more the closer it gets to my surgery day which is in 4 days. It's hard to stop smoking but I have quit before and stayed quit for many years. I just have a big problem of letting stress get to me and then there I go again with the smoking. I'm hoping that after surgery I want have the urge to want to smoke....Good luck to everyone on their surgeries and quitting....and Happy New Year!!!
