It depends on the operation and the infection you have. If its one that will attack your immune system, probably not, but just a cold should be ok. I would contact the hospital

I would imagine because of "swine flu" they will be be very cautious

The most important thing is your chest, they won't give you anaesthetic if you are chesty.

Doesn't feel too bad at the minute, I just feel snotty, but daughter has a cold at the minute, so I'm worried.

Typical :(

Probably you'll be OK, my sister had this problem but hers was only a small operation. She needed a general anaesthetic but it still went ahead with her having a cold.

This is my second try for this op, last time it was cancelled as there was no bed, was expecting the same again this time, knowing my luck there will be a bed, but they will say no as I have a cold :(

That's the thing, it isn't a small op, it's a 5 hour jobbie, so I have a feeling they will say... NO!

Doctor will review pre-op listening to lungs etc and take blood sample looking for signs of infection (raised white cell count, raised CRP (an inflammatory marker), then anaesthetist will review aswell. Just having a cold should be fine.
Hope the operation goes well

well that sounds a bit more promising, so long as it's only a cold, maybe I'll be ok.
