I ran a temp of just over 100. One time it was 100.8. I had to go to the Er 2x due to being dehydrated. I'm not sure if it means anything (I did ok) but, it is best to call the Dr right away and get advice. Take care!

It still seems like a low grade fever - a natural response to the body after just having surgery. Call you doctor with your concerns or review your discharge paperwork from the hospital. It should tell you when to call as far as fever limits go.

I had a low grade fever on and off for about a week after surgery. It came up in the afternoons and would go down in the mornings. It was just a normal thing, but if you still feel bad, call the doc.

Sounds pretty normal as you're just barely out of surgery and recovering, but if you feel concerned, call your surgeon's office.

Did you leave the hospital with an incentive spirometer? (it's a plastic breathing device often handed out post op) It's not uncommon for people to spike a bit of a fever post op due to shallow breathing. If they gave you the device, use it several times an hour while awake. If not, make a conscious effort to take deep breaths, several each hour. This helps your lungs clear the effects of the anesthesia.

And @ John's Hendren, I hope the rest of August got better and that you're into a Super September.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
