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.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
