I've just been given a date for my laparoscopy (on Thursday!) but I've managed to pick up a horrid cough over the weekend. My letter says that I need to let them know if I have a cold etc. I called them and said I have a cough and the lady sounded quite unsure as to whether or not I should still have the appointment... She told me to go and see a doctor to get an opinion which I have done - he said it's just a head cold and won't affect my chest or breathing. I've done the stupid thing and googled and all these things about what could go wrong if you have a cough and have General Anaesthetic have come up! Should I go to the appt on Thursday given that the doctor said I should be fine and just see what the specialist says on the day (providing it doesn't get worse!) or should I cancel and let someone else have my appointment?
Any experiences or thoughts would be hugely appreciated!
