Getting sick B4 Thursday

After having a house full of little sickies I guess it was inevitable.
I have a cold and a sore throat and I won't be able to talk to my Dr. until tomorrow.
I really don't want to have to reschedule
Does anyone know what makes them cancel surgery?

Re: Getting sick B4 Thursday

My doc will cancel surgery even for a cold. It has more to do with the anesthesia than the surgery itself. I'm so sorry. That was and still is one of my biggest fears. I've been washing my hands like no one's business. Luckily, the sickies have steered clear of our house so far. I'm sure they'll come whole hog soon enough.

My surgery is also on Thursday and I have been terrified that an illness would cause cancellation (after waiting 5 months already). So far so good, with 3 days to go I'm healthy.

My family doctor told me that it would take a bad flu or shortness of breath to have them cancel. Hopefully if it's just a common cold, they will go ahead with your surgery.

Best of luck..nice to know there are many others going in the same day!

I just recommended this on another thread but I have found L Glutamine or Glutamine powder (same difference) will stop a cold in it's tracks. I get the fast acting fruit punch flavor powder from GNC & mix it with water. I've been taking it for the past 2 weeks to try & help. It's an amino acid that boosts your immune system. I've heard hospitals use it to help patients with their immune systems. Usually it's used for bodybuilders to recover after a workout. My step dad told me about it 2 years ago & I take it whenever I feel the icks creeping up.

Oh no Laura! Not you too... so many of us sched for this week have come down with some sort of bug! Praying that you can get past it or just get a light version so you are still a go for Thurs. I thought I was getting better but today my ears stqarted acting up -- we will see what tomorrow holds.

I am thinking maybe the stress of this whole process is messing with our immune systems! well maybe I would believe that if my whole family weren't sick lol

Wishing you the best! Our castle sticky goes up tomorrow --- and I am starting to get SO nervous!

Re: Getting sick B4 Thursday

I sure hope you feel better by Thursday!

I have surgery tomorrow morning and I called the doctor's office today because my husband and 2 little sickies are all sick. My husband has slept in the guest room for the last 3 nights so I won't catch his cold. The nurse told me that if I have a fever, chills or am congested or coughing , it will be canceled.

So far, I'm good. I have to make it 9 more hours.

I pray you make it. Rescheduling would be so hard!
