What kind of nicotine test did you have to do?



Recommended Posts

Hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.

For those who had to quit in order to have surgery: what kind of testing did they do to make sure you quit tobacco?

I quit smoking 26 years ago, but everyone in my program had to have a nicotine test. It's one of the blood tests they order when they do your labs (usually once you're in the program - and sometimes right before surgery, too)

This is an Interesting question. Makes me wonder the motivation behind it.

Good luck.

The motivation is curiosity.

I didn't have to do one before my RNY but I did before my recent plastic surgery. It was a urine test. Apparently they test everyone. I've never smoked.
