Surgery sched for thurs. and I'm sick!

I can't believe I have come down with something less then a week before my date at the castle! Dr. Has me on a zpack and I hope it clears everything up quickly. I really don't want to have to reschedule. Saying prayers that I can get past the worst of this before the 16. Ugh.

Sweetie, I am sorry you are sick. I am glad you called your doctor, though, and you got something to take. Hopefully yur body can fight off the virus with help of the drugs.

Thanks marestail. I am so glad I told the dr yesterday. I was going to wait till monday, but when I was having my preop testing the nurse kept hearing me cough and said I shouldn't wait. It had just started so hopefully we caught it before it has a chance to really settle in.

Re: Surgery sched for thurs. and I'm sick!

I came down with a mild cold last Tuesday my surgery date 2-13-2012. I tried Cold eez and Ziacam to Zinc up but as of today the surgery was canceled as I still have a cough and cold. =( I figure God has his own plan so I will call to reschedule Monday. So bummed though. I wish you better luck in beating that little monster!
Good Luck

Re: Surgery sched for thurs. and I'm sick!

I will you! My eye started getting yucky friday night. By the wee hours of saturday there was no denying I had pinkeye. Throat just a tad scratchy & one side of my nose a bit congested. Went to a satuday clinic at my pcp's. He put me on antiobiotic drops & said he thinks i should still be able to have it. I see one of the two drs tomorrow who will be operating so I guess I will find out then

Re: Surgery sched for thurs. and I'm sick!

My surgery is scheduled for Friday and I also have a cold. My GP put me on a Z-pack a week ago. For a few days I felt great and then my husband got it. Even tho I stayed away from him, I still got some congestion back. Thank goodness I called my GP back on Thurs. and she called in some more Antibiotics for me. I am determined to beat this!! If I have to cancel my surgery I will go CRAZY!! I am so ready to get it over with. Does anyone know if they will still go ahead if you have just a small amount of congestion, or if it is all or nothing??

Re: Surgery sched for thurs. and I'm sick!

I had a sinus infection and was on antibiotics a week before surgery and they still did the surgery. Nurse at the hospital made me call my surgeon thought to tell him. I still had my surgery.

It is for your safety if they cancel since they are putting a breathing tube in you. Just rest up and hope for the best : )
