Hi congratulations on quitting it will definitely help with the heart problems and yes you would have to be smokefree to get a transplant. I received my transplant 2 years ago January 2018 and the good Lord Help me quit smoking Oct 2011. Mayo did know i was a past smoker and it did not hold up my transplant. Now mine was about 6 years but i smoked 1-2 packs a day. So I'm thinking that if you are smokefree and no chance of starting back up then it shouldn't be an issue. Even tho it was only a couple of years. Good luck and ask any questions you may have.

Hello,
Thanks for responding.
I used to be a smoker until 2016, I remained as a smoker, but I was smoking 2-5 cigarettes daily, then 2018 came, I was told that I will die soon, so I decided to smoke more because I was treated as a dying man:), but recently, I was approved for a heart transplant, so I quit, just about 10 days ago, I do not desire cigarette at all, but I'm afraid that they might reject me on my first appointment date which is February 24th …
My congratulations for you , I hope you will live happily and in a prefect health always.
God bless you.

Thank you, God bless you.:)
