Woke up today with sore throat and head congestion.  On and off today I've had a slight fever between 99 and 101.  Don't feel horrible (wondering if it's allergies, ragweed is coming out around here).  I have colonoscopy/endoscopy scheduled for Fri. morning.  Will they do this if I have even the slightest temp.?  I was just planning on seeing how I am feeling tomorrow before calling the doc's office.  My dilema also is I have to start the prep tomorrow evening and I don't want to go through that if they aren't going to do it.  Anyone know???

here they do the endoscopies and colonocopies through our same day surgery. If that is how they do it there I would call the nurses station there and ask them about it. If not I would call the surgeon who is going to be doing the procedure and ask him. Why put yourself through all the prep work and then get turned down for the procedure.

I would definitely call and find out before doing the prep.  It's a very valid question to ask.

Yes, it is a valid question. I'm having one next Thursday myself. Oh boy!!
