Brief Answer:

She needs to be investigated.

Detailed Answer:


As your wife is having fever with gastritis, she should be investigated and rule out the cause of the same.

Get her blood and urine examination done to rule out the cause of your fever. She can take antacid for gastritis. Fever could be due to urinary tract infection. See her stitch site for any discharge and breast examination to rule out breast abscess.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
