Maybe getting a head cold/having surgery ACDF C6-C7 Nov. 5

I am scheduled for surgery Nov 5th for a ACDF C6-C7. I think I'm getting a head cold. I had MRI last week and the found a herniated disc that is pressing on spinal cord. Will they operate if I still have a head cold? I can't imagine being in a neck brace and all stuffed up to boot.


  • My pre op instructions always say to call if having any cold/cough symptoms. If you are running a fever it;s very unwise to have a major surgery when you re already battling an infection. If it persists I'd call the Doctor's office.
