    One activity that you, as a patient, can do to improve your chances of doing well with surgery is to quit smoking.  Chemicals within cigarette and cigar products constrict (squeeze smaller) blood vessels in the heart and may even lead to a heart attack.  Stopping smoking before your surgery will improve your health – even if you have smoked for many years.
