my friend who quit smoking 5 years ago and started back a month or so back?
the person that provided her the cigarettes and company to win her back as a smoking buddy is having her legs amputated this week. So, the hip surgery the doctors would not perform because my friends friend is a smoker? Well it doesn't much matter because she won't be able to walk with no legs.
it seems those sores on her feet would just never heal because they never got enough oxygen.i explained to my friend that smoking robs the blood of oxygen and replaces it with carbon monoxide.
i wish i would have known this and considered quitting when i severed my right foot and was in a wheelchair and crutches for three full years because, it never did heal right.
in any case
i warned her that if her friend comes back home and continues smoking, the wounds from the amputation will never heal from the inside out like they should, and she can expect her friend to continue to lose her extremities one piece at a time.
her friend has not been able to smoke for a week because she's been in the hospital with pneumonia.
the smart choice would be to never smoke again.
Do you know anyone who is approaching this state and totally oblivious as to what may have caused it? You would do well to let them know what happens next. Don't be bashful if you care about them.
