Well I have 3 days until my anterior cervical fusion of c5/c6 and i feel like I'm coming down with a chest cold. I know I'm not supposed to take any vitamins or Ibuprophen for a week before surgery but does anyone know if I can take zican or mucinex? I want to see if I can stop it before it turns into anything because it may hinder the surgery if I have achest cold, especially because I have asthma, they may not want to put me under. Since it's the weekend I can't call my doctor office so I figured I would ask here...has anyone ever had a cold before surgery and what did you do?
