    I took Emergen-C, lots of water and a lot of rest. They will do the surgery if there is no infection and no cough. Have you been on antibiotics? Perhaps ask your doctor?

    I had the same problem before my surgery. I was given a cough syrup with codeine and antibiotics which worked tremendously (plus vitamin C). Best wishes for feeling better! =)
