I think you have a leak. I would definately see your surgeon right away.
I'm not sure why the Dr's you are seeing are saying they don't know what is going on. If you have liquid outside the stomach, that is most likely a leak. Not trying to scare you but please see someone ASAP.
God Bless honey!

When I went to the hospital I saw my surgeon and I think he doesn't want to say its a leak because he says after 6 weeks you're healed and I am passed 6 weeks. I'm thinking of going to another surgeon for a second opinion because at almost 10 weeks out I shouldn't be only on liquids and feeling like this
Oh my goodness! No, you can definately have a leak even a year out. Not likely that far out but you can. I've read of a couple. You are mostly safe after 6 to nine months. You must go to the ER if you are still having fever. Do you hurt in your shoulder or anywhere on your right side? I worry about this for you. I so don't want to scare you but this is something that has to have immediate attention.
