I have a cold and my surgery is in 2 days!

I started with a cold on Sunday and hoping I can kick it by Wednesday!! I went to the pharmacy today and picked up some zinc and vitamin c. I am drinking lots of water and eating lots of veggies. I am not coughing, but a little stuffy it I do not use nose spray. Is this really something I should be concerned about?

Re: I have a cold and my surgery is in 2 days!

I would definitely let your doc know. I had to have a surgery postponed because I was running a slight temp. The worry would be that your system would be much more likely to be unable to fight an infection. Call your surgeon and ask them about it. You may be fine as far as the surgery. Sending hugs and prayers that you feel fine tomorrow.

Re: I have a cold and my surgery is in 2 days!

Let your doc know that you have a cold - and be careful with taking anything (meds, vitamins, herbs, etc.) that your doctor does not know about. Call them and ask them if it is okay. This is VERY important. They need to know all of this - it is for your health. Even OC-type meds can cause problems with surgery. So, please call.
