Can I Undergo Victrectomy And Evasilicon Surgery When I Have The Flu?
Put it this way, I have a plan scheduled for a major operation to continue victrectomi + evasilicon on the eye. But after taking blood the next day I had a cough and flu, until now. Can I undergo surgery + local anesthesia in a cold cough?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Conditions for mild physical disorders such as flu and cough are not included in the contraindications or obstructions to surgery. Usually what can cause a person to postpone surgery is an unstable condition such as blood pressure and high blood sugar levels that are not controlled, the presence of blood clotting factor disorders and the like.
So in your case, it is not a problem to continue the operation. But if you are anxious, or worried that there may be other conditions that can prevent you from doing surgery, major operations like this will usually be preceded by a physical examination by a doctor or nurse (the night before, if you are hospitalized) to ensure that you can indeed do the operation. At the time of this examination, you can ask if there is anything you are doubtful about. If alarming matters are found, the operation will be postponed until it is declared safe. So, hopefully answering your question.
