Diagnosis/TREATMENT


I've signed the paperwork for surgery. It's worse then I was told. I have to have a bypass of my right groin and stents put in my calf. After surgery is over and I'm recovering I will be consulting with my lawyer. I was in the hospital for the first time with this Dec 19th and in numerous times over a 7 week period, they did NOTHING and kept passing me off and sending me home saying come back if it gets worse. I kept going back and they kept doing NOTHING. I have now been told I am close to looking at amputation below the knee! If this surgery dosent work. My surgeon is very confident he can do it successfully, I'm scared silly. I MUST quit smoking, no choice and I haven't had a cigarette in 4 days but it's so hard. I can do it and I will . Has anyone quit smoking? What helped You?
Please forgive the jumbled blog, I'm trying to keep my thoughts straigh but I'm taking Dilaudid for pain and it makes it hard to think

As a matter of fact I quit smoking after a week in the hospital. After my 1st heart attack I woke up with a ventilator tube down my throat, that will scare you straight. After a week without cigarettes it was easy to continue from there.

No wonder you're scared
Why didn't they give you a straight answer in the beginning? I stopped smoking when I had my first hip replacement back in 1999. I've never smoked since and found it surprisingly easy to quit.

I'm in pain now with both ankles and I'm due for an appointment at the treatment room with the practice nurse on Wednesday. Looks like I'm in for the long haul again.

I do pray that your surgery is successful.

As to leaving the smoking, when my grandfather quit, he used peppermint Lifesavers for both the fiddling fix and the oral fix. This was before I was born. All of the grandkids benefitted as if Grandpa had one in our presence, we got one as well. I think that by the time I was having Lifesavers with Grandpa that he really did not need them to put off the smoking, but liked having them to share.

I quit after more than 25 years by using nicotine patches - found they worked well when you're motivated. Best of luck...
