    Default Sick and booked for weds

    Ive woken up with a cold this morning! I feel horrible. My c section has been moved earlier due to complications but I heard they dont operate when your unwell?

    Just after some feedback I guess

    I had the flu when I had my c section and they still went ahead as it was necessary an emergency one at 34 weeks... I think if theres complications that mean you need one, they will do it regardless however I may be wrong.. hope you feel better soon. drink plenty of fluid and rest as much as you can and take any meds you can to try and ease the severity.. best of luck

    I would call the hospital & let them know.

    I know when I've had previous surgery (not a c-section though), if I was unwell I had to call the anaesethist (spelling?) and it was up to him if it went ahead - (I had a cold type thing - surgery went ahead).

    Someone at the hospital should be able to tell you - then at least that's one less thing to stress about!

    Hope you start feeling better soon (and best wishes for the new bub)..

    I think it's usually when it's under a general & breathing may be compromised that they put off surgery. I've had a cold before & they have operated (gyno surgery, not section).

    All the best for your csection!

    I agree, you will only need a spinal not a general anaesthetic so you should be fine to go ahead.
    Good luck, won't be long til you get to meet your LO, how exciting!

    If you have a chesty cough and cold then that would impact you if you were having a general anaesthetic. Especially if you have respiratory problems such as asthma or emphysema.

    You will more than likely have a spinal anyway, so you should be good to go on Wednesday. Enjoy meeting your LO.
