I had what I though was a cold before the op, went to the health food store and bought every cold and flu type remedy.
Had a high temperture on the day of surgery... I felt fine.. but they still did it.
Turned out I had the flu!! But I didn't know.

I had a raging cold on the day of my surgery, didn't tell the Dr, everything went fine, personally I think it was just from the stress and worry.

Oh Lizz, what a bummer. But don't worry, I'm sure if it's just a head cold you'll be totally fine. Rest up over the weekend, have plenty of fluids and I'm sure you'll be fine.

Oh, dear, Lizz - you poor thing, hopefully it will disappear as quickly as it came ! I think you should be fine - as Groovy said, pneumonia , or bronchitis, or something would be a problem, but a cold should be ok - they all wear masks, anyway !!!!!

No, you should be fine. The only thing that would stop it is pneumonia, just be sure to do your deep breathing and coughing exercises religiously after the operation. Good luck.

Hi!!

I have woken up this morning with itching throat and runny nose!!! 

Will have a cold delay the sleeve on Monday? I really hope not as it will then need to be delayed for at least 2 months!! 

I have just dosed on panadol and Vit C!! Any suggestions to knock this on the head? Should I call the surgeon and tell him?

HELP!! Thought I was stressed before!! 😢
