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!

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
