Perhaps you should call your Dr. - you should have received a post-op instruction sheet and somewhere it should read like this:
Call your doctor or nurse if:
- Your temperature is above 101 °F.
- Your incisions are bleeding, red, warm to the touch, or have a thick, yellow, green, or milky drainage.
- Your belly swells or hurts.
- You have nausea or vomiting for more than 24 hours.
- You have problems swallowing that keep you from eating.
- You have problems swallowing that do not go away after 2 or 3 weeks.
- You have pain that your pain medicine is not helping.
- You have trouble breathing.
- You have a cough that does not go away.
- You cannot drink or eat.
Wishing you fair winds and following seas,
