? About nicotine testing



Recommended Posts

I used to smoke but quit over a year ago. However, I went out about a month ago and smoked about 5 cigarettes. Nothing since. Does anyone know how long it stays in the bloodstream? I'm terrified I messed my surgery up for one night :(

You should be fine if it was over a month ago.

My surgeon never tested me though, i didnt know they even did that.

Just quit, its awesome.

Yep, had all my testing done today at the hospital and he did not request nicotine testing. I guess it's because I'm a four time cancer survivor and he figured there'd be no way I'm smoking. He would be right, of course. But I know in the seminar class, he told everyone there, if they smoke, they'd have to go 6 months smoke-free before he'd operate.

You should be okay...drink plenty of Water and add cranberry juice to your diet. I know my bestfriend did and she passed, even after having smoked 6 days prior to her nicotine testing.

It takes nicotine 3 days to leave the bloodstream. You'll be fine.
