Perhaps...: This cough could be due to post-nasal drip or gerd as well as bronchospasm. The ultimate desicion to proceed with the procedure is made by your surgeon and anesthesiologist. If there is no wheezing or signs of infection and your oxygen level is ok, they will likely proceed with the procedure but the desicion lies with the surgeon and anesthesiologist. Good luck!
