mixed bleach and pee? should i get out?

idk if this is tmi but im at work and i think someone put bleach in the toilet (my coworker had said she cleaned some places with bleach) and i went to take a pee and it started sort of,, fizzing?? and it smelt like bathroom cleaner so i just. flushed it and got out but i heard mixing bleach and ammonia makes a toxic gas, could it still be lingering in the bathroom?? i was exposed to it probably for only like ten seconds until i realized it was fizzing, is that dangerous for me? or do you have to be exposed to it for a Long time for there to be any damage?? im 19 and paranoid help lmao

    Mixing bleach and the slight amount of ammonia in pee is not harmful. It's when ammonia from a bottle, which is quite concentrated and bleach from a bottle, which is strong, are mixed. Then it will produce a toxic fume.

    There is no ammonia in fresh urine so it wouldnt have, and even if you did get a wiff of that gas you are talking about, you will be fine, its only if you are breathing it in for a long time that it may harm you.

    You don’t excrete ammonia at all. You are fine

    Unless you are a fish, you don't produce ammonia. Mammals excrete urea,
