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!

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
