I had the flu and laryngitis less than a week before surgery, I still went ahead.

I did get quite ill following surgery. Not sure if it was related to that though.

If in doubt, post pone your surgery for a couple weeks.

Thankyou for the support it turns out I have tonsilitis, the GP seems to think 1 or 2 courses of antibiotics will clear it up, I am just hoping that will be enough time

Hi Pharie
Sorry to hear you are not well so close to your surgery date.
If it were me I would be beating a path to the dr's door in case there is anything he could do to prevent infection etc. But this is my feeling only.
Good luck and hope you are feeling better really soon

go to your gp and call your surgeon, from what I understand they wont operate if ou are sick because of possibility of infection but check. don't panic :)

Hi all,

I have my surgery booked 2 weeks from today and I have flu, I am tempted to go to the GP and get antibiotics as I have a small child to look after, I am just wondering if this would be ok, has anyone else been sick just before their surgery.
