Will a little cold keep me from having surgery?
I am scheduled to have a bliateral mx and a DIEP on the 23rd. A mere 12 days from now. And I might have a cold.
Thursday morning my cat climbed on top of my high kitchen cabinets. I wish I'd have let him find his own way down because it stirred up a lot of dust when I got him down.
It caused an immediate tickle in my throat, which by the next day had turned into a scratchy throat. (This was also the day I gave blood for upcoming surgery)
By the next day (Saturday) my throat was actually sore.
I have a cough due to drainage. I have a slightly runny nose, which is running clear.
I have one eye that is puffy and swollen and sore and I have NOT rubbed it to make it that way.
NO fever. I don't think I have any conjestion. My head is not stopped up.
My chest is sore from coughing so much.
I don't feel real good, but I don't feel like I'm sick...exactly.
My daughter has all of this too.
I want this so bad to be allergies.
I found this stupid lump and was diagnosed with DCIS in October. I put off surgery once already due to changing hospitals/doctors. I've already done all my pre-op and everything. I am one appointment was from this surgery!!! I don't want it put off, I want it over with!!!
I was told to call them if I got sick. But ...don't you think I'll get over this in time?
Has anyone ever had surgery with just a little cold????? (Remember, there is NO fever!!)
