Yikes! Caught Cold and surgery on Monday

Eeeeek ! I caught a cold and I really don't want to reschedule. My hospital pre reg is today. Please pray that this cold moves on quickly. I started with the Zinc and the Zicam right away. Please pray that my surgery goes on as scheduled without a delay. The dr said if I caught it we'd have to reschedule. Hoping I can get through it in the next 4 days ! It seems mild little sore throat, runny nose and sneezing. Please be praying for me. I have been praying pretty consistently. Would appreciate your prayers too.
Thanks

I came in to suggest the Zicam! I keep fighting off every cold brought into this house with zinc & vitamin C. You wouldn't want to be sneezing next week!

I also got something that made me stuffy / cold like just before my surgery. I checked in and they said as long as I wasn't running a fever they would probably go ahead with it. And everything ended going fine. I got to have the surgery and I think that all the antibiotics they gave me helped my system kick the cold/ bug / whatever it was to the curb.

I agree with Shutterbug vitamin C would be a good safety plan

Good Luck!

I am 2 weeks post op and want to encourage you to cancel if you do get a cold. You will be completely miserable if you are sick post op. It hurts to laugh even.

Good luck to you.

I would cancel as well. It's very painful coughing and clearing your nose after the surgery. I would let your surgeon know asap.
