beurgers disease

My husband was recently diagnosed as having beurgers disease
and was advised to give up smoking, which he has done with the help of Zyban, that was about a month ago. The reverse effects haven't taken place yet, if anything he feels worse and is experiencing stiffness. Shouldn't he be starting to feel the reverse effects by now?

Bobby, one would have expected a change for the better by now. There might be other factors that need to be eliminated like:
1. Chemicals – iodine, aspirin, etc.
2. Excessive cold.
3. Poorly fitting foot wear.
4. Fungal infections.
The best would for him to see his doctor and find out why there is still a deterioration in his condition. Good luck.
PS The correct spelling is Buerger’s disease or thromboangiitis obliterans if you want to search the Net.
