Hi everyone, so today is 1 month since I had my open radical to remove Raider(5lb tumor) and my right kidney amongst other tbings. I should be celebrating but I just got home from being in the hospital since Mon.. I started having pain and swelling Fri, by Sun I was stuck in bed and nauseous, Mon i was feeling like the first day of surgery all over again but with a 102.4° fever and excrutiating pain so I ended up in the Er.
They quickly admitted me, telling me they thoughg i was having septic shock and that my heart rate was extremely high. They ordered tons of blood work and blood cultures, ct scan w/wo contrast, chest xrays, ekg's and more. My cbc showed normal white cell count but they said my urinalysis had a high white cell count but i didnt have a UTI or anything. About 1inch above my surgery site is where my pain was n it was swollen, but the drs all said it was just imflammation nothing to worry about. Anyway I was there until today, when my final cultures showed nothing bad, they never found a reason for my fever or pain, Should I be worried about this? I mean Im glad my scan didnt show anything but i ran a fever on and off for a few days, and my sodium chloride level was low, they had me on antibiotics. Has anyone else experianced something like this around 4weeks after surgery?
