Oh gosh! I'm in the same boat as you...but my cold started earlier though thank goodness.. My surgery is also on the 17th.

I've been drowning it with fluids (water and OJ) lots of sleep and running a humidifier 24 hours a day.

besides the usual fluids and rest?

Gurlge mouthwash several times a day.. this will help kill any bacteria in your mouth and throat.

Ive heard good things about the product called "Airborne".. but its really more effective if taken as soon as you notice symptoms. A friend of mine is a school teacher, and he is exposed often to bugs.. he highly reccommends this product.
