Hey Joe, the pamphlet I got from my hospital said that if your health changes or if you don't feel well, you should call the surgeon as soon as possible. At my pre-admin appointment though, the nurse said they don't worry too much about mild colds.

I hope that helps, good luck! I have my surgery tomorrow too, go team!

You'd be surprised how many times I have read here that people get sick just before surgery. It happened to me as well. Everything went ahead with my surgery. Good luck tomorrow and remember as soon as you are able, walk, sip, toot, repeat. I have saved you a nice spot on the loser's bench.

Thanks all. I'm feeling a bit better after a Tylenol/optifast and some water. Looking forward to tomorrow.

Get as much rest as you can and try not to stress. Stress will make any of us feel under the weather.

Be well and have a great surgery tomorrow!!

BY the time I had done a few weeks of Opti I felt run down. Almost sore and no energy.

Good luck and don't stress to much about it. They will desire what is best for you.
