Brief Answer:
Post op stress

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

For about 15 days after surgery, there will few symptoms like hot flushes or disturbance in temperature regulation. This is normal and occurs due to post surgery physical stress and hemodynamic changes.

I suggest you wait and observe. If the same persists for more than a month of surgery, we may have to think about other possibilities.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
