I had my laproscopic surgery on 11/21 I have constant chills all day long; can't seem to warm up. I don't have a fever; just bad chills. Does anyone know if this is normal? I was post menopausal 7 years prior to surgery and so no hot flashes; just cold.....help!

Thank you
Sabina

To be sure, you should just call and check in with your doctor's office and tell them. Did they give you discharge instructions? Sometimes it says if you develolpe chills to contact them.

Thanks Kaleena. I left a mess for him to call; I'm hoping he will call back today.

Best,
