Question about cold medicine and encouragment for those waiting

I'm one week from having surgery (9/23) and this morning I feel a cold coming on. Before I call my doctor, can anyone give me a suggestion as to something I can take that would not be a problem. I really hope I don't have to postpone surgery because I don't think I could handle the wait. I had been pretty nervous last week when I went for my pre-op but when I got back to the office my calendar for the day had Psalm 118:6 which says "The Lord is for me, so I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?" This calendar was written two years ago, but God knew what I would need that very day. Hope this helps, it sure did me.

Question about cold medicine and encouragment for those waiting

Hi there!

Be sure and mention this to your DR.... now - so steps can be taken to be sure your lungs are clear for your surgery. If your lungs are congested, surgery may have to be postponed.

I had knee surgery many years ago after a bout with bronchitis. I was feeling better, but evidently my lungs were still not totally clear, and they told me I almost died from choking in surgery and in the recovery room. I was in such distress that I yanked my IV out of my arm (without realizing it) which could have caused big problems, too.

Now, with this surgery, abdominal surgery, coughing is definitely not something you need to be doing alot of.

So, it's good that you are bringing this up and not taking this lightly; please call your DR's office today and have them advise you about this.

Best wishes and s to you!
