I am having surgery in six days, but I am down with a bad cold. Its going to be a major surgery to remove my cystic ovary. I am having second thoughts on asking my doctor to postpone it because he was kind enough to arrange his schedule to accomodate me on that day.
I have a runny nose, chills and and coughing. This cold started 3 days ago with a sore throat.
Can I have surgery if my immune system is this low?
Honestly, the thought of surgery scares me. The thought of losing one of my ovaries saddens me.The thought of how much I will be paying after all this, especially since I lost my job, is hard to even think about. I do try to get by one day at a time.
