Well my ACDF C6-7 is scheduled for Dec 7th. Doctors office was worried my insurance may not approve it in time since it just a few weeks away, but they called an hour later saying it was already approved!
Now I am worried because my OS does a nicotine test prior. I am a light smoker, less than 10 cigarettes a day, and have already stopped completely, but I am wondering if it is too late. I will absolutely die if they cancel my surgery!
Any feedback here? I have pre-surgery conference Monday, do you think they will test me then?
