I had ALIFt L5/S1 on February 4th. Still enduring pain, taking Percoset daily but trying to wean down to only 1 Oxycontin per day (40 mg). 2 nights ago, I had these terrible cold sweats right around bedtime and a little through the night. Pain was "normal" for me. Last night, it was like someone was pouring water on me all night (my head and pillow were soaked), my LBP was HORRIBLE and I had a fever of 100.0 at 4 am. No fever when I awoke this morning, but was only able to eat 1/3 banana and 1/2 apple all day. My skin "hurts" like it would if you had the flu, lower back still same, but fever is almost 101 (my normal temp is like 97).
Should I worry that it could be an infection from surgery or has too much time passed and it's just likely the flu???
