Defintly keep an eye on it. In fact I would at least let my team know what is going on. You want to keep them in the know. Be sure to keep up on your fluids. Congrats on having your WLS!!

I agree with @shedo82773. Let 'em know. Mine was let them know any fever over 100.4 or any low grade fever lasting longer than 24 hours.

I ran a 99.somepin on and off for about 2-3 days during the afternoon and early evening. Then it would go away. Someone said that's often a result of anesthesia. So I did a bunch of deep breathing work and coughed my toes up and hocked a few lugeys and felt better! :D

Hope that works the same for you. Drink lots of fluids! Do any of your incisions feel hot to the touch or look redder?

Yes post op your body is responding to surgery and its expected to have low grade temp between 1-3 days. If you are worried call doctor to be on the safe side.

Feel better!

Yes, I was having fevers and chills the first 3 days or so. It's pretty normal. Your body is in shock. Keep an eye on it and see your surgeon if it doesn't stop after a few days.

My incisions are not hot or redder.
I called the Dr. She said I should do the breathing exercises and walk.
Definitely call back if reach 101.5
To be honest I don't feel well enough today to walk.
When at hospital( past 2 days I've walked 3 miles daily)

As others have mentioned, keep an eye on it. I would say that if it climbs above 100.9, please get to your local ER.

Feel better soon! Deep breathing really helps if you don't have a spirometer!

Hi LEILH
I'm telling much better thank you!
Fever was gone after couple days, gas problems under control.
Right now I'm in the process of learning about the case 2 diet and having little difficulties with the Protein shake[emoji43].
So overall I would say...I'm doing good!
