Can I Have Anesthesia If I Have A Cold
I have a cold on that day of wisdom teeth extraction and Immediately feel nausea, vomited after waking up from anesthesia. How long gut muscles heal?
Going in for surgery on sep 27. I have a cold can I still have anesthisia? Went to doctors just a cold nothing more. Really don't want to cancel.
Probably: A "cold" will resolve by 9/27. If, however, symptoms persist or worsen (a productive cough, fever, muscle aches) let your care team know. Elective surgery would then have to wait; "reactive" airways due to irritated mucosal linings would add a small, but significant, risk to anesthesia. Prudence, then, dictates waiting until that "cold" is on the downswing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

One thing which: Can help to distinguish the flu or a significant bacterial infection from a cold is the presence or absence of a significant fever. Colds usually don't cause a fever or at most cause a small increase in temperature. The flu or serious bacterial infections can cause significant rise in temperature. Take care. ...Read more
No treatment : If you had one, you'd never have to work another day in your life! colds are caused by viruses (antibiotics are useless!) and run their course in 3-5 days. Cold meds prolong it by blocking symptoms. Nsaids, decongestants and nasal lavage (neilmed) are great palliative measures, as are old-fashioned folk remedies like chicken soup and tea! better yet: get plenty of test and drink lots of water. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
