how sick do you have to be for your surgery to be cancelled?
i have a scratchy throat, kinda tired, but other than that, no other symptoms. i'm not sure if it's allergies or i'm coming down with a cold. my surgery is thursday and i've heard that they will draw blood the morning of and test your "levels" to make sure you're healthy enough for surgery. if i do end up getting a cold, will they cancel surgery right there on the spot? or do i have to be worse off than a cold? of course i don't want to put myself at risk for not being able to fight anything off b/c i have a lowered immune system, but i've been looking forward to this since FOREVER...and now it's finally here and i may have caught my 4 year old's cold! WTF!?!?
