    Hi
    Can the surgeon postponed my surgery? I've got a really heavy cold and I'm worried they are going to delay doing my sleeve. On top of that I've a slight infection in my tooth which the dentist has just prescribed some antibiotics for..
    My surgery date is 10th Jan

    It cannot be ruled out because of the anaesthetic and you being able to breath. It may depend on when it started. Best to check with hospital if you don't want to turn up and be sent home, as I have been given information with past ops that this could happen. Shouldn't think the antibitiotics would be a bar though.
