One week to go and I'm getting sick :(

Hi All,

I'm scheduled for 6/6 and this morning I woke up scratchy throat, stuffy nose was hoping it was just spring allergies. Now I'm starting to cough and my ears are hurting, this is the last thing I need because I do not want to delay my surgery. I looked at my pre-op brochures and it says basically no medications 7 days prior....guess I have to call my dr in the morning.....this is the worst!!!!!

I so know how you feel right now, I'm scheduled for the same day. I started to get a sore throat last week and I was freaking! I gargled with salt water 3 times a day. I did that for 3 days and it went away. now I just have a little bit of sniffles still I'm sure it'll be gone by Monday. I wish you the best of luck Hopefully the Doc doesn't reschedule

I was supposed to have my surgery last week and had to reschedule as I was sick. I am scheduled for Thursday now. I was feeling much better yesterday and woke this morning with more green gunk and a sore throat. I will be getting a vapour rub today to rub in my feet and put some socks on. Its meant to help flush out a cold. Here's hoping we are all better for our dates. I dont think I could handle rescheduling again.

My surgery is scheduled for the same day yours and I was wondering the same thing this last weekend. I really hope everything turns out okay for you so things can go on as planned. Sending good vibes your way~~

Ugh. I sure hope you're not getting sick. Take good care of yourself! Lots of fluids, at the very least. If the doc says no medicines it wouldn't hurt to ask about herbal remedies. It'd at least be worth a try.
