Will procedures go ahead despite virus?

I'm due to have an MRI on Sunday followed by an endoscopy on Monday. Annoyingly the last two days I've woken up with glands the size of golfballs and have congested ears and head. I'm hoping they will shift, but do you think the procedures will be allowed to go ahead as planned if whatever this lurge is doesn't shift?

Thank you in advance

I'm not a medic - sorry. But I've had some MRI scans.

You have to be able to stay still - sneezing would be hopeless I'd have thought.

I'm not sure if swollen glands would be a problem for the endoscopy. It wouldn't help presumably.

Can you get an appointment with a GP today?

I didn't want to waste my gps time so didn't book an appointment. I did ring radiology and they are still going ahead but endoscopy have moved it back a week.
