Hey Kathy
I posted with a similar question last weekend!  Try taking lots of Airborne and drink a ton of oj and water! That seemed to be the trick for me.  I was over my cold within days.  I did not want to post pone my surgery.

I went to my dr. two days before the surgery and she said I seemed well enough. You might want to call the dr. Wednesday if you are still feeling icky and ask them.
The dr. nurse and anesthesiologist will double check you at the hospital if you are concerned.  
Good luck with the surgery.  If you aren't feeling well, you definately don't want to go through with the surgery.  Recovery itself will take a lot out of you so you don't want to be sick on top of it. Plus it will hurt to sneeze, cough, blow your nose becuz of the surgery.  You throat will most likely be very sore because of the tube they put down your throat, a cold would just worsen it.

Take care & hope your "bug" goes away!

That Zicam works wonders for the on set of cold. I took that plus a little DayQuil last week, and I was fine by Friday. Too bad that it doesn't work on the pain in the lower regine though.
