I had my surgery a little over a month ago... for the past 3 days, had horrible diarrhea and now I have a low grade fever. I called the nurse today, but she won't get back to me until she gets to work tomorrow. Should I take something for the fever or let it go... It obviously means something is not right in my body. IF i take something, it will take the fever away. Then people will think I am nuts... I hate when physicians think you are faking it. I feel like absolute garbage right now and I feel like my head is on fire. I can feel the heat coming off of me. what should I do?
