Default panic - or overreaction?

I have my medical and x-ray on Monday and am coming down with a cold! (could be nerves!) I hope that this won't ruin my chances!

Should I cancel or keep my appointments?

Hi Izzy
Well its upto you really , but i would say that you might be overeacting a bit . I cant say for definate but i dont think a common cold will be a major medical condition for a doctor let alone your outcome of your visa. See how you feel its upto you at the end of the day , and chill we have had our medicals done they were ok honestly.

We certainly wouldn't cancel.
If it was anything like our doctor who only completes the medicals one afternoon a week - you could end up not being able to meet the 49 day deadline.
During the medical they do check your lungs - depending on how bad your cold is this shouldn't affect it too much especially if it is obvious to the doctor you have a cold.
Hope you are feeling better.

You're overreacting, I think

Keep your appointments, a cold won't disqualify you and I doubt it stops them doing
the medicals either.
