Sammies--take a breath, don't worry until you have answers! What has your doc said? Will you be going for a CT Scan?
Sometimes we get little pockets of fluid left behind after surgery...remember that a proctocolectomy is a MAJOR procedure! Personally, I had to have a drain put in a few month's after surgery when I started with a fever and became really tired:( I didn't expect it and it was a surprise...maybe you have something going on too.
Have you been feeling okay? Is your bottom all healed? how about
your incision? Let us know what your doc plans to do...sometimes a course of antib's can do the trick, depending on what it is.
Don't forget you can cry on our shoulders
