Getting Sick!

Recommended Posts

I am on Day 9 post op and I'm getting sick. Runny nose, sneezing, coughing, sore throat. Is this going to be a problem for my healing band? Is there anything I can do to make it better? Has this happened to anyone else?

I got a cold within the first week after surgery. It HURT to cough and sneeze. I took Nyquil, which always helps me, I think it's a wonder drug! It calmed my coughing and sneezing, so I'm hoping I had no damage to the band. Whatever you can take to diminish those symptoms probably will decrease your chance of band damage, although I imagine the risk is fairly low.

It probably wouldn't hurt to call the doc to make sure and to see if he has any suggestions.
