I just got back from my OB's office. It isn't a uterine infection, it is a skin infection. I developed a boil 2 days after the surgery.[:I] My doc thinks probably I got scratched when they were scrubbing me with the Betadine. Anyway, I never had one before and didn't realize how serious it can get. He says it has spread and I have cellulitis which is causing the fever. (BTW, it spiked to 102.7 this morning and was still well over 102 at the doctor's office.) He gave me a strong antibiotic and some pain medicine. Said go to bed and stay put for the next 2 days. Sounds good to me. I really cannot remember ever feeling so sick. [xx(]

Kathy-

I had a loss in September which was a missed m/c and needed a D&C. From my understanding it helps the process of healing along. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Kathy,
I am so sorry for your loss. I agree with Alex. Head into the ER if you really aren't feeling right. Better safe than sorry.

Kathy, I am so sorry for your loss and that you are having to go through all of this.

Please don't hesitate to go to the ER or call your doctor if you think you need to.

I had an infection after a D&C once, and it was a very unpleasant experience. And yes, it did feel like I was getting the flu - hurting everywhere. My temps were also low but did eventually spike. So I agree with your 'better safe than sorry' way of thinking.

Please keep us posted and I hope you are feeling much better soon.

OK, I am feeling much worse. Can't sleep because I hurt everywhere. Fever is not too bad, about 101.7, but goodness i feel just awul! I had a flu shot last month, but I really feel like I have a bad flu. Hurry up 8:30.
