i am 7 weeks post-op of surgery 2/3. I now have a healing j pouch and a loop ostomy. I dealt with low grade fevers for my first 2 weeks of recovery and was fine. I was supposed to return to work this past Monday, but I've been fighting a fever, sometimes as high as 101.8. Lab tests showed no indicators of infection, and I'm negative for flu & pneumonia.
Any insight would be extremely helpful, as my medical team is dumbfounded by this.
Something i did notice ice shortly before the fever onset was my j pouch mucus discharge went from clear and odorless to a faint brown and with a stool like odor.
