Quit Support

Broken bones heal faster (I hope)

Going into Hospital tomorrow for a operation to fix a twisted leg, ha ha. There going to break my leg and straighten it with pins and a cast. its shaped like a bannana after a hip replacement. I have just been told that you heal quicker if you don,t smoke ( I DON,T SMOKE, YIPPEE.) I have been waiting 2 years for this and did,nt know when it was getting done, I only found out 6 days ago so it,s great that I chose the right time to quit.Hope you all keep up the good work while i,m away, no having a sly one because i,ll know when I get back.

Take care and I,ll be thinking of you, I really hope it gets easier for each of you. Remember that quitting is not a problem for you all, its the way you deal with the problem thats the problem.

Leg fixed, all done and dusted, healed within 10 weeks, they said it could be 12 months. Yippee, sure it helped giving up the fags. Hope your still being good and not puffing away and I hope your keeping well.

You're right about a safer, faster healing process for non-smokers.

Good on you for being smokefree :-)
