Anyone get sick before surgery??? I'm facing possible SECOND postponement!!
By jazzylady on 24 Feb 2013
I was scheduled for last week, and came down with flu a few days before. Although I felt better, when I saw the surgeon on the day of surgery, I was cancelled since I was still considered sick. Surgery is now rescheduled for the end of this week. I recovered from the flu, but woke up this morning with all the classic symptoms of a sinus infection! Since it is sunday, I cannot call PS til tomorrow about this. To complicate things, I currently do not have a primary care dr. since he quit practicing. I truly am thinking of just not having this surgery done. I worked like a dog to prepare for the time off, my husband has postponed a surgery HE needs, this is just all happening at the WORST time! I can't help but feel like this is some sort of sign that I should not have the operation. I didn't have any doubts before, just nerves. But I am really at my wits end here!! Does anyone know if I will be cancelled AGAIN?
