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 met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
