Thoracic Spinal Fusion Pre-Op
I'm going in for my pre-op battery in about a week and a half for spinal fusion. I was informed that there would be a drug test before surgery for "insurance reasons". I was also told that my surgery would be cancelled if I failed. I am not quite sure how reliable each of these sources are.I smoke marijuana regularly to manage the back pain and am wondering:
Am I going to be given a drug test during my pre-op tests?
If I am given a drug test and I fail for marijuana will my surgery be cancelled?
