Need quick advice !!!

I can't believe it - I woke up with a 'wet' cough this morning. Going to the castle tomorrow !!! I do think it is from sinus drip and I know I don't have an infection. I had a root canal 2 weeks ago and have been on antibiodics since then.

The Dr told me I would have a general, but now after reading your comments I'm wondering if I should ask about a spinal instead.

Having a TAH/BSO at 7:30am.

What do you think?

Your anesthesiologist will make the decision in the morning based on what's happening then. Make sure they know about it even if it is gone in the morning, so that they have all the information they need to make an informed decision.

Hi Delabar!
Please do inform your doctor and anesthesiologist of how you have been feeling. I don't know what criteria is used for determining whether to go ahead with surgery, but it sounds like you will be okay. I am not sure if you will be able to change the type of anesthesia that is used on the morning of your surgery...maybe one of the other ladies will know. You should know however, that many women have a general and do perfectly well with it. Any type of anesthesia has possible side effects. You just don't know what will happen until you go through it yourself. Good luck to you...let us know how it goes!

It occured to me that you could always call you doctor today and let him/her know about your cough so that if anything should be done today to help you will know about it.
