Cough that won't quit

My surgery date is still 3 weeks away but I have had a cough since Thanksgiving- they have tried three different antibiotics already, and even a round of Predisone- a steroid-it toned it down but its still with me. I know from when I had my gallbladder out that a cough makes things so much worse. Did you all say they won't even operate as long as I have the cough?
Gee, I just have no clue how to get rid of this cough. My DH has to schedule a week of time off etc, if the cough isn't gone by then he ends up taking the time off for nothing and loses his ability to take time off later. So this cough is causing me stress that I don't need on top of the normal stresses with this surgery looming. I imagine my doctor will do a chest x ray next but if shows nothing, I have no idea how to shake the cough. My DD had a cough too, and two antibiotics plus a shot of antibiotics finally shook hers, now my DH has a bad cough and has been on antibiotics for a few days and they haven't helped him at all yet. Blood work came back normal, the CBC, and basic levels- except my Triglycerides were real high 400- I am only slightly overweight, but I have high blood pressure so the triglycerides being high is a concern too. I've added fish oil and odorless garlic tabs plus am learning to bake not fry my foods.Sorry to ramble on and on but truly this cough concerns me. Thanks for caring my dear sisters.

Well, best of luck to you, considering you have time yet to shake it, don't giveup hope. I had a head cold and my dr put the fear of God in me when I had it for pre-op visit and he said, better lose that, or no surgery!!! I said, when do I know if it's too bad? He said, if it leaves your head and goes into your chest, forget it and he suggested that i get on an antibiotic from my family dr right away. You already have gone that route, but your house is sick, as was mine, and we kept re-infecting eachother-make everyone rest and drink lots of liquids to get well for you as much as themselves!!!! I'll keep you in my prayers!!!
