Im starting my two week clear liquid diet Today but I also caught a cold need to know if it is ok to take cold medicine
Answer 1 Lap band surgery needs a full two week balanced diet before your surgery. This diet fully depends on your health and your body which your doctor prescribe you. This contains protienious food excluding as much fats, carbohydrates and cholestrols. This is very necessay before surgery because your liver must be of proper size, if it is somehow bigger then your surgery may be postpone. As per your query, you are facing cold which is common with many patients. This may occur in some patients because of lower thyriod level.
You may take some antibiotics for this but not from your own, first you have to cosult your doctor regarding this and they will prescribe you the proper medicines. If it is treatable from medicines before surgery then it is okay or else your surgery will be postpone for some day. You must avoid foods or drinks which are cold in nature after consulting your doctor.
