Unhappy Cold before Colorectal Surgery

Hello all. I'm about to have my 4th surgery in 4 months for a perirectal abscess that formed a fistula. It has been a nightmare so far, but I just switched surgeons and feel confident that the new surgeon will be able to help me. my main concern right now is that I seem to be coming down with a cold. I have a week, so hopefully it will clear out before then, but does anyone know if they'll cancel my surgery if I still have a cold?

My History-
12/4/11 - Drainage perirectal abcess (failed)
12/28/11 - Drainage perirectal abscess with seton placement
2/1/12 - Placement of fistula plug (failed)
3/2/12 - EUA with possible partial fistulotomy and placement of seton
4/?/12 - LIFT procedure

Accepting advise and friendship through this very trying ordeal.
