Many of you know the huge amounts of issues I have had with CD this year and that I need yet another surgery. For a couple of weeks now I have been having a sore throat but blamed it on allergies and my grandfathers heating system...it is forced hot air. I have been having a lot of post nasal drip too but that too is common for me. I keep checking my throat with a flashlight. This morning I sound a little more raspy as far as my voice and I looked at my throat and it appears as if the PND color is now a brownish color. I have not been getting any of the crud out and my asthma is not othering me and typicallly it does when I get a cold.
I saw my colorectal surgeon yesterday and we set up my Sx date for Jan 4th. My question is can I have surgery with a cold and/or sinus infection? I attempted to call my PCP but he is not in the office til Dec 31 and it is his own private practice and so he didnt have anyone covering according to the answering service.
Has anyone had surgery when sick? I called the surgeons office already and told the receptionist about the possible cold/infection. I hope they can still do the Sx but maybe give me antibiotics or something I was actually looking to get the Z pack.
