Hopefully by now you are speaking with your doctor and you are getting to the bottom of things. It sounds like many problems happened during your surgery. I am sorry that he ended up fusing them. I can tell from you post that you are sick and tired of extensive surgeries. He was honest about what had occurred. That is unusual in this day and age. I hope he still focused on your wellness.
When it comes to the fever... many things come to mind. First and foremost is urgent care. Especially if having a fever after surgery is uncommon for you. You never know for sure, so it is best to air on the side of caution. Also, on your discharge papers should be a list of "Warnings". If any of the warning signs are happening (they are) that would be even further confirmation that it is time to head down to urgent care.
I am a bit different. I have always had low grade fevers on and off through the majority of my adulthood. When I have any type of surgery or surgical procedure I run about 100 - 101 deg.. Even after all my eye surgeries. So, I usually have to keep my eyes peeled for a fever over 102 and any of the other warning signs. My doctors have never been able to figure out why I have the fevers one and off. Let alone after surgeries.
I hope you can update when you get a chance. You are in our hearts and prayers!
