I'm scheduled for surgery on Tuesday (resection of scar tissue in terminal ileum, appendectomy, ileocecalvalvectomy) and I'm running a low grade fever (100.1). My last humira injection was just over 3 weeks ago. I didn't think it was helping me, but it must have been helping somewhat, because I haven't had a fever since I've been on it. I've been up all night with the usual pain, plus the fever and pain in my hip. The humira must have been keeping this at bay. I don't feel like I'm coming down with an upper respiratory infection. I just feel CD crappy. I've arranged everything (personally and professionally) and am more than ready for surgery on Tuesday. I'll check with my doctor today, but does anyone know if my surgery will be canceled if I'm in the middle of a flare?
