Last nite i was feeling my back incision and realized it seemed like my back was on fire. I called the husband (once again out, but with his phone on) and had him get a thermometer on the way home.
Sure enough i was feeling lousy and had almost 101. I just watched it did not get any higher and will watch again for it tonight. It was gone in the morning. I did not seem to sleep more than 20 minutes at a time after my husband woke me to see if i was OK!at 1:30am. Felt like i was still in the hospital.
This nerve sciatica pain is really awful, i just keep standing and walking a few steps and trying to get a little rest somehow, no luck right now, more when i can sit or lay or stand
