Head cold 4 days away from surgery



Recommended Posts

I'm scheduled to have VSG on Monday and woke up today with a head cold...sigh. Did anyone here have surgery with a cold? Wondering if they are going to reschedule now which of course throws my entire life off with time off from work and travel schedules etc.

If it's just a cold, they probably won't reschedule. If you are running a fever, they might reschedule.

It is definately the fever thing that might cause you to postpone. Also if it is upper respiratory they may do the same thing.

I am having plastics next thursday and developed a cold a few days ago. I started eating airborne and things improved quickly. It was a cold that was just getting started and it feels like airborne stopped it in its tracks.

Not positive about that but it certainly seems that way.

Hope all works out for you! Get well soon!

I was told that if I am sick on day of surgery that I will have to reschedule
