I hope you guys know what I can do and can help me out here. I woke up this morning with one of my glands in my throat swollen which, for me, is usually the first sign that I have a cold coming on. I feel pretty good, but my sinuses are a bit clogged which could be just the time of year or an additional sign that I'm getting sick.
Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but I have my surgery coming up on Wednesday and I've got everything set and just can't postpone this.
Of course, the pre-surgery paperwork says you've got to stop all herbal medicines and they list some of them specifically, but I'm wondering if anybody knows if I can take Zicam? This is an herbal cold remedy that tends to nip it in the bud before it becomes a full blown cold. None of the ingredients is on the list, but it IS an herbal medicine.
Of course, this is happening on a 3-day weekend for my docs, so do any of you know if I'd be messing things up if I took this? Or do any of you have an alternative solution?
Thanks in advance for any help.
