I have never been more excited in my life than I am now. My doctor called me Nov 24 and told me that she will be putting through the referral. I was told to wait approx 2 weeks, so ive got atleast 1 more week to go before i hopefully hear from someone about something. I know this is gonna take a bit longer for me to start as I need to quit using my vape, but dang it im proud i atleast quit cigarettes 4 months ago! So as I see it small steps to the end and this time Im going to make it
So I quit smoking, then back tracked and ended up with a vape prior to my surgery... what I did was step down on the nicotine levels in my juice and started using zero for a few months prior to surgery. That way you still have the 'pacifier' effect of the vape, without the nicotine.
Maybe that'll work for you!
Good luck! And WTG on the quitting the cigarettes!!
