Hi, I am new to this, so bare with me. I read posts everyday that you all post and have gotten great info! So thank you! Now that I have had my first surgery, I decided it would be a good idea To join and make a post. So, hello, I'm the newest member! I wasn't able to find a post relating to my problem.
I had ACDF ten days ago. I struggled then and struggling now. I ran fever for 5 days, ranging from 99-103 degrees. Finally broke yesterday and have not had it since. During the night, last night, I woke up because I needed to pee really bad. But, as I was trying to get up, I realized I had already peed in my pants.
This scares me, never has this happened before. I am 34 yrs old and the days of wetting the best stopped 32 years ago! I have the need to go more frenquently since the surgery, I drink water all day. But I have never even come close to going in my pants. Is this related to my surgery, if it isn't, what could cause it, and should I be concerned.
