What is your age & sex?
Do you have any cough?
For what surgical procedure anaesthesia is to be given?
An important role of the anesthesiologist is to ensure that your daughter breathes freely when asleep for surgery. This is more of a challenge she has a cold because she may have a lot of secretions and her air passages may be more sensitive. Sometimes this can result in coughing and spasm of the airways.
The decision to cancel Anaesthesia & hence surgery with a cold is based on a number of factors:
Typically, person whose cold is limited to the nose and upper parts of the throat, whose secretions are clear, who do not have a fever, and who do not feel sleepy or lethargic can be safely anesthetized.
Person who look sick, who have a fever (over 100oF) and have yellow or green secretions probably should have their surgery cancelled.
As your child has no other symptom other than cold, he can be anaesthetised safely.
Hope this helps

Although Triaminic is safe but it may cause dizziness or drowsiness.
So I advice you to stop it before 12 hours of surgery.
