I caught a cold a few days after my rhinoplasty surgery. Is this bad?

Not good, but OK: This shouldn't have any untoward effects on your long term results. Touch base with your surgeon. Don't blow the nose, and avoid any Aspirin or Aspirin related products unless recommended by your surgeon. An otc decongestant product should be fine to help you if you don't have any other medical issues (like high blood pressure). Nasal saline spray is also good to use. ...Read more

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 more
