So after 2 months of not smoking I caved in and had a cigarette yesterday. Dumb I know. Nicotine stays in your system for up to 4 days. Did anyone get screened for nicotine (or any other drug) on the day of surgery? My surgery is in 4 days and I'm worried that it'll come up.

One is fine I am a smoker- IF you are really worried go to GNC and get a flush out

I did not have a nicotine test and smoked on the way to the hospital

I don't smoke but on the day of surgery I wasn't tested but asked if I'd smoked or drank or eaten anything.

I bet you will be okay; come here and vent next time you feel like caving:)

this isn't what you asked (the answer to what you asked was no, they didn't re-test me the morning of surgery, or at least not to my knowledge), but don't slip up with smoking. I smoked for 20 years (finally quit for good 25 years ago). Before my final quit, I had two pretty long-term "quits" (c. a year or more). All it took both those times was one cigarette, and within a couple of weeks, I was back smoking full-time again - and about to kill myself for doing so!! I know I can never, ever smoke a cigarette again, or it'll be back to full-time smoking in a matter of time. The addiction and my identity with smoking is still strong all these years later - I still have dreams where I'm smoking a cigarette - sheesh!!! So - don't let yourself slip up again!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
