Coughs and colds can make your airways more “reactive”. However the effect can last for four to seven weeks after your illness.

There are signs that the cough or cold is a little more severe than usual. The signs are

  • Fever
  • Reduced Appetite
  • Productive Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nasal Discharge

If you have these symptoms it is important that you see your GP (who will be able to assess you prior to scheduled surgery) or contact us so that our staff can determine the best next course of action for you to take.
