Around 5am this morning, I woke up twice coughing. No gerd in my mouth but sore esophagus. By 9am, my temp was 103! I called pulmonologist on call. He increased......once again.....my prednisone and now on antibiotics again. This is the 3rd time I've aspirated. I was doing so much better this last week. Now I'm in full blown tears.....so upset. Hoping my surgery wont be cancelled. Did any of you go into surgery with a fever? To make matters worse, my nose just started bleeding again. I feel like this is going to be the death of me.
