slight cough

Hey ladies, I have my surgery on the 7th.. eek.. so scared (another topic though) I had an awful cold 7 weeks ago, and the cough is just lingering with me.. it is only slightly productive in the morning, I usually have this anyways) and then it is a dry cough throughout the day..

Today, my throat is ever so slightly sore.. should I blame the allergies.. (i think they are back here with a vengeance) Do you think they will still operate with these symptoms?

Re: slight cough

Hi Dee!

I think it might vary as to what your doctor and her/his staff requires, but one thing they'll likely check for is fever. Another is chest congestion. Neither are conducive to any kind of surgery under anesthesia.

I had bronchitis once and it was several weeks later but with a few residual symptoms as I went in to have knee surgery. I can tell you I wish I had stopped and waited until I was 100% clear. I had a very rough time with the tube down my throat and woke up with a different gown on because I ripped out my IV while still unconscious, and of course bled all over my first gown. The nurses in recovery told me I had a terrible struggle with my breathing while I was under, too.

Never again!

I don't want anything like this happening to you, so consider your symptoms very carefully and inform your doctor. As soon as you can! There might be something your doctor can advise you to do to better prepare for surgery. Worst case is that it gets bumped out, but if it does, there will be a very good reason for it.

Good luck! Hope all clears up and your surgery is on schedule and successful.

Re: slight cough

I can tell you what happened to me. I had been planning surgery for about a month. I had everything arranged with work, insurance, and so on. I ended up catching a cold about 5 days prior. I even went to the doctor and he gave me antibiotics. To make a long story short, I didn't tell my surgeon and I ended up with bronchitis. It hurt so bad to cough! Anyway, if you still have a sore throat you should tell your doctor.
