Fall and winter surgeries - flu shot?

Anyone planning on taking the flu shot before surgery?

I am considering it. Haven't been well with stomach issues so my diet is sadly lacking. Can't eat most fruits and veggies right now. Gastritis taking a toll. This is why surgery was cancelled from 9th September.

Hoping I don't get sick before upcoming surgery!

Re: Fall and winter surgeries - flu shot?

I'm going to take mine while I'm in the hospital for my surgery. I work in health care so I usually get one anyway, just to be "safe", but the timing works out pretty well so that I'll ask for it while I'm there this week.

Is it wise to have flu shot same time as surgery?

Ask your doctor to be sure. I was OK'ed for it because I'm otherwise healthy and will be getting the shot as one of the very last things before discharge. I wouldn't want it before surgery because it usually makes me feel sick for a day or two.
