Suggest medication for cough and snuffy nose

I am due to have Lap band surgery in 6 days time however I have become sick with flu like sympstoms a few days ago- I now have a cough and snuffy nose that is improving but the cough remains the biggest pain at the moment. SHould I think about rescheduling everything? I am not producing anythng with the cough except I can feel a very tiny bit of something after each cough and I am needing to clear my throat also... Please advise as I have had to book time off work and organise an ex-husband to take timeoff work to stay with our cdhildren etc and I dont really want to cancel unless there is a chance of me being really ill afterwards.. Thanks, Tracee
