Can You Go In For An Operation If You Have The Common Cold If I Have A Cold Will My Surgery Be Postponed
Can you go in for an operation if you have the common cold? If I have a cold will my surgery be postponed?
Maybe: It depeds on your overall health and the length or type of surgery that you may be having. If you are having fevers or a lot of coughing, then surgery may be postponed. If there are only symptoms such as irritated throat or nasal congestion, then surgery may be alright. If it is a longer surgery that is planned, you would not likely want to have a lot of coughing after surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

My son has tetralogy of fallot. He is a month old & hasn't had surgery yet. I have a cold. Would it be very dangerous for him to catch it?
Yes, possibly: Keep in mind that infants in general have smaller airways, smaller reserve and can have more significant symptoms and morbidity than adults. Now add to this that this pt has a congenital heart lesion and you can understand that you want to try to keep this pt as healthy as possible, and although he may do well with a cold, his likelyhood of not doing well is higher than the general population. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Have a "cold" thyroid nodule <3cm. Dr wants biopsy but i suggest surgery to get it over with. What do you suggest?
Biopsy: Most of the cold nodules on thyroid scans are benign but cancer has to be ruled out. Thyroid biopsy is a relatively noninvasive and simple procedure to perform and can give the answer. I would definitely suggest to start with a biopsy as an initial step. Then , if it is inconclusive or you feel very uncomfortable, talk to your physician. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Hi i got cold after septoplasty is it common? Safe? Its my 3rd day after surgery what should I do?
Home remedies: You most likely have developed a viral infection post-operatively. The viral infection should have little effect on the final result of the septoplastly. The healing process may take a little longer. Fluids, vitamin c and time are all that is necessary. The surgeon might want to take the pack (splints) a little early. Ask your surgeon. ...Read more
