As many of you know, I had a laparotomy on the 6th. Today my temp sky rocketed to 99.3. I temp vaginally. This is bad, yes? I have a call into the on call doctor to double check, but I am wondering if I have an infection from the procedure.

Could I develop one this late after though (11 days ago)?

My stomach is very tender and warm (bad signs I think). The incision is all healed up though.

Your thoughts? Should I be concerned? I am supposed to go to a wedding tonight 2 1/2 hour drive from my house (and my hospital).

TIA![f]

Thank you for the replies... I got a call back from on call doctor. She said it wasn't high enough to worry about it, call back when if it goes past 100.4.

I am such a baby, geeze. [bl]

I would still skip the wedding - it's high enough that it might be a good idea to just hang around, rest and relax. You don't want to risk it getting higher. (assuming, that is, that you don't really want to go to the wedding anyway. This is a great excuse. If you're excited about going, you're probably safe to go)

Yes this is a low grade fever. Did the on-call doctor know that this was a vaginal temp?? Temping vaginally or anal will always be higher then an oral temp.
When someone tells me their temp I automatically think their temp was taking orally.
If you did not tell the on-call doc that this was a vag temp I would call back and let them know to get clarification. Is it bad if your temp gets that high during an oral temp or a vag temp.

My personal experience with an infected incision happened 8 days after the surgery and my temperature was at 105.5 - and yes, you are reading that correctly. I tried to get out of bed and couldn't walk (yes, in ER and yes, hospitalized for 4 days). I think if I had temped earlier I might have caught it spiking like that so just be very careful going far away from your house..... I had an air pocket in my incision that was tiny but man - it was a doozy!

I hope you feel better soon! You know your body best, so if you think things are going sour....get to the doctor![hug]

No, I did not tell her it was vaginal temping and I thought about that after the fact. Went to the wedding, didn't take my temp today so we will wait and see tomorrow I guess. I feel fine, so hopefully it was just a fluke and will pass.

Thank you (all) though for your concerns and for replying! [f]

From everything I've ever known that is not an actual fever... I temp vaginally also and my normal mid day temp is always between 99.1 - 99.4... which like someone else said always going to be higher being vaginal or anal... I am not even a tiny bit sick. I think you are fine just keep an eye on how you feel!

Right, that is your normal temping range. It's not mine so it just freaked me out. Plus still in quite a bit of pain. But fortunately temp went back down and [fc] pain subsides soon! [tu] :)
