I have whooping cough, when will I be well enough to have surgery?
I was due to have my BA on 27th September. However I have just found out I have whooping cough and so my surgeon postponed the surgery for a month. I am devastated as I booked the surgery date 5 months so it has been a long long wait. I am travelling from Brisbane to Sydney for the surgery and so it's not so simple just to wait and see how I go. I am a mum of 3 and I have to find a friend to come with me who can take time off work. Everywhere I have read the cough from whooping cough can last up to 3 months. It's nicknamed the 100 day cough. I want to reschedule my surgery for 6 weeks time but will the occasional coughing affect surgery and recovery?
