My son had an ruptured appendix for 2-3 weeks. It had walled itself off. He had a modified laproscopic appendetomy 2 weeks ago. He has only had a temperature once in the last week (post discharge ) of 99.8f. He has lost 24 pounds in those 2 weeks. He is 6 4 , an now weighs 276# s. He also gets the cold sweats for no apparent reason. His skin in pale, eyes mildly sunken in and fatiques very easily. No nausea or vomiting and bowel habits are back to normal. His incisional pain is very mild (he had a tremendous pain threshhold). He is drinking 6-8 16 ounces of H2O as instructed. My major concern is the cold sweats. Why and what does it mean?
