Rest, rest, rest, and more rest. I'm sure other people will chime in with more proactive things, but I know for me, rest is absolutely key in reducing the severity and duration of any illnesses I get. The more I try to push through them, the sicker I get, and I never seem to get over them until I really rest.
I hope you feel better soon, and good luck with your surgery.

Respiratory infections: things I know way too much about!
Rest & Vitamin C (of course), and if you have them, inhaled steroids more often than usual. I am admittedly great about taking my pills, but awful at remembering to do my inhaled meds all the time. I can definitely notice the difference, though, when I keep up with them - especially the preventative one.
I had another idea, can you beat your chest like Tarzan? lol that sounds dumb, but I use a vest that vibrates my lungs so I don't get lung infections, like this (don't mind my Fran Dresser laugh, Jersey was being crazy that morning) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0LzTmFn-Ok
Thx everyone! Yes cannot wait for surgery day! Cramps even on depo right now can be awful! Dr gave me naproxen but its too hard on my stomach! Its like non stop pms when i get cramps! Only good thing is no bleeding.
And the fact they keep me up all night, but can fill my t3( for migraines) tues so that will effectively help cramps
