    So basically you have two dead in that OR pretty soon. The cadaver where those lungs came from and the person expecting to get a set. Having probably his old set taken out and on bypass.

    When you quit smoking it takes at least 10 years for the body to make repairs. You will still have damage as I do in mine but 10 years is a good start towards gaining a percentage of pre-smoking healing where possible in yourself.
