I got in a big fight with my boyfriend this weekend. Today, my throat feels a little sore and I feel tired but I don't have a fever or stuffiness. I am supposed to have surgery next Monday under general anesthesia. Is it still safe to have surgery?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You do not have any fever or swollen glands. This is not likely infection.
Excessive voice use can cause soreness of the voice box ( larynx).
This should improve over next few days.
You should not have any problem with the surgery scheduled on next Monday.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
