hello! I just learned that I'm getting surgery for my disc in a little less than 2 weeks from now. my preoperative exam is this Thursday. I do vape nicotine, and I was wondering If this would stop me from getting my surgery. I stopped today to make sure, but I'm a little nervous that I won't be allowed to.

      I feel good! Instead of the leg pain it's now just the pain from the surgery :)) thanks for asking!!

    I don’t smoke but I had ACDF surgery back in 2019 and i remember them saying no nicotine for several weeks I believe but I’d be honest and just tell them to ease your mind !Good luck with you’re surgery

    Stop smoking a couple days before so you don’t wake up during surgery

    It’s going to hard to not hit your vape but after it’s done you’ll be able to smoke nicotine for taking edge off
