Re: Yikes! Caught Cold and surgery on Monday

I had the same problem the week before and started on antibiotics and crazy sinus rinses. I also bumped up n the multi vitamins. I quit everything the day before and felt pretty good going in other than the sinus headache. They gave me daluadid for that : ) Good luck, but if you are still sick, reschedule. You don't want to have any complications with healing.

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.
So here we are 2 days away. My DH thinks I should wait until tomorrow to call the answering service and leave a message for Dr. He seems to think I will be miraculously recovered Monday Morning. I feel fine but am coughing and sneezing with a little runny etc I DO NOT want to reschedule however do not want to inconvenience everyone involved because I waited to the last hour and then they can't do surgery. Do not want to risk my health either. Ugh It does seem to be a fairly mild cold. What to do. Also, seem to be getting some lower front quaudrant pain when peeing. Poohy, probably a kidney stone. Really? Really? This is so frustrating. Thanks for your support ladies.

So how are you feeling now? I hope you are feeling much better. I feel fine but started some coughing yesterday and this morning I'm coughing more. I think it's from post nasal drip. Shoot what to do. My DH seems to think I'll be miraculously better by Monday morning. I also have to endure the day of cleaning out my bowels and I am worried that will rough on the body because of loss of fluids. Best of luck to you. keep me posted. I hope if I can't go at least one of us can LOL
