mild cold before surgery

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all,

Do you think you could still have surgery if you had a mild cold..I'm about to have a hysteroscopic mymectomy this fibroid and been told I will have a general anaestetic.

I don't have a cold as yet but I feel like I'm about to have one..my chest feels tight and my voice is a bit funny...I'm frantically drinking orange juice at the moment.

I've read that you could have my operation under local or regional anaestetic...If I did have a mild cold would the surgeon;s do that or will my operation be cancelled..I don't think I could wait any longer I've been sooooo depressed and stressed in the last 5 months.. :cry: besides I've already had 6 zoladex injections..I know I can't have anymore..

Any advice or help would be much appreciated

    Tezi - you are still alive!!!!!! :D

    Well done - it's great to have you back and now you can put it all behind you!! Fantastic.

    Sorry you had a few problems but they've all been sorted so you can forget about them now ......

    I didn't like to ask about the bowel specialist last week - i wondered if you had cancelled it. Please don't start worrying about a colonoscopy Tezi - just forget about it for a few weeks (I'm sure your problem IS piles and can easily be put right!) So please, promise me you will not start reading up about all sorts risks and problems - I will talk you through it nearer the time!!

    Take care and take it gently for the next week or so.

    Hi Denise,

    I had one fibroid right in the middle of my womb..It caused me unbearable periods and pain. I had a hysteroscopic myomectomy which involved removing the fibroid from the womb through the cervix.

    Don't worry I was just as worried as you probally more, once you have a scan they will tell you what your options are and possible treatment.

    Surgeon told me I should get my periods back in 3 month because I've been having monthly zoladex injections which stop your periods for a while before surgery.

    How long have you had this problem hun?

    Hi Tezi

    Don't worry it's all quite normal - you will have cramps and spotting for a while. And as for your privates being tender - well, if you saw what went on in the operating theatre, it's hardly surprising! :shock: There's a lot of pulling and tugging going on - I would never want a gynae op. under a local anaesthetic!!

    Everything sounds right on schedule Tezi so you have nothing to worry about.

    Take care

    Katie xx smile
