Is it ok to have a 101.5 never more fever 3 days after surgery? I just had decompression and fusion at L5S1 on mon and was sent home home on weds morning. For the most part I feel pretty good still some nubmness in right leg , but I can walk pretty damn good. The only concern is that once or maybe twice Ill get a slight fever 101-101.5 that lasts for about an hour than goes away is this normal and shold I stop worrying about it? Thanks on percacet for pain might cause some poor spelling sorry


  • Any fevers greater than 101, you must inform your surgeon. Just to be saved. It could be a serious problem underlying like infection. Please call immediately. If your fever is consistant and doesn't go away, head to the ER. Please don't delay.
