Hello and thank you for your question.
Feeling a cold shiver is a sign of your body trying to fight with an infection.
So most likely you have viral infection that your body is trying to fight off.
As you have surgery scheduled wednesday you should talk to your surgeon if it is okay to go ahead with the surgery.
Rest and drink plenty of fluids to recover faster. If you have fever and cold than post pone the surgery if not than surgery can be done on wednesday.
Please get back to me if you have any further questions. Thank you.
So should surgery only be postponed if I have a fever, not just for a cold?
yes if you have fever than post pone the surgery and if you have cold it would not matter but need to consult your surgeon as each doctor has it's own protocol.
