My doctor told me to cut back on smoking if I wanted the sleeve, he also said that if I was having the bypass I would have to quit smoking all together. When you smoke you end up coughing a lot after surgery that is one of the reasons they want you to quit and there are other problems it causes but don't know what they are. I would ask him about it again let him know how much and how long you have been smoking ask him about cutting back and not quitting, ask him why he wants you to quit, and what the complications are of smoking.

Each doctor is different and has their own way of doing things, I was very lucky mine was ok with me cutting back I went from a pack a day to half a pack a day before surgery.

After surgery I did have some coughing but the long walks to and from the smoking area helped lol.

We were told the same thing at Kaiser, and that later they would run a tox screen before surgery. Luckily I was only a social smoker and quit without a problem.

Research Rimonabant HCL. It will knock your nicotine addictiin clean out of the Water along with your herion, marijuana, opiate, or and drugs that interact with the CB1 receptors in the brain. Does it work? Hell yes. My wife cant even be around people who smoke any more cause it makes her sick. Shes been clean since 2006

What will knock your addiction? Because my crew at work all smoke n I love the smell. I think it all depends on the person if you ask me. I'd spark one up if it wouldn't hurt me but I know just cause I'm healed on the outside doesn't mean I'm healed on the inside.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
