Re: Will they postpone surgery if you are sick?
They will probably reschedule it. I was scheduled to have fusion surgery on my back, and it was cancelled. I went to do the pre-op with a tiny bit of sinus trouble-no fever. The hospital said fine, but when I got to the surgeon's office, he said no. He said when you have a cold, it makes anaesthesia more risky. Different surgeons may be different-my doctor wants you well when he operates.
