I had my proctocolectomy 2 weeks ago today. I have been cold all day. I had chills once or twice and my body temp is 96.4. I'm not really sure what this means if anything. Should I call someone? go to the hospital?
 
What do you think?
 
I need some input!

I was so cold when I got home--kept asking my husband to turn up the heat. Could be dehydration--have you been drinking enough?, being tired, lack of circulation from not moving too much. Try some ankle pumps and a few short walks around the bedroom. If it continues, I'd call your visiting nurse or doc soon.

are you taking pain meds w/tylenol? that could mask a fever, too.
