    At the doc right now to get checked. If I take my medicine, will this delay surgery?

    If you have a UTI, you will have 6 days for the antibiotics to take effect. That will probably be long enough, but I think you should tell your surgeon if you do have a UTI and let him decide.

    Much better not to go into surgery with a UTI and feel like rubbish because of it.
