Hi, i am due for a tummy tuck on the 2nd of march 2013 today is the 19th of feb. I think i may have a black mold infection, i am going to see my gp tomorrow. I have been having muscle aches which came out of no where and burning and tingling sensations all over. Tonight i sudden felt a burst of pain around my left side pecks and shoulders. I am thinking of cancelling my procedure as im worried about possible mold toxins and the anesthesia. My question is. should i can or go ahead.
