Monday Update

I've felt pretty good until about three o'clock this afternoon. Now, I think I might be coming down with a UTI. I had some burning with urination, body aches, headache, and now a temperature of 100.4.

I have called the doctor's office twice. The first time I spoke with the nurse and she called in a prescription for me. I just called back as my temperature has climbed higher, and Dr. D. thinks it's related to a UTI.

So, I'm waiting for Michael to come home from work and pick up my prescription, and I will not be going into work tomorrow.

Sigh...

And I was doing so well!

I got a UTI after three of my four surgeries. Apparently it is quite common. And no fun at all. I'm sorry!

I guess I'm the only dummy that doesn't know what UTI is. I'm gathering its an infection of some sort. I'm so sorry. I hope you heal up and feel better soon :)

UTI =urinary tract infection.

Stay on top of your doctor. Any post surgery fever should be taken seriously.

I am surprised at how many people had post lap UTI`s. I never knew it was a potential complication. ICK
