Excessive sweating and shivering after surgery. Pain in the hand, mood swings. Pain medication side effects?

i had surgery 4 days ago and am experiencing excessive sweating but shivering at the same time. i am also having bad dreams and mood swings. i feel like i am getting sick and my hand is starting to hurt more than it did before. Could that all be from the pain meds i was given? Even if I have only taken 10 out of 30 in the last 4 days

Hi Christina,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
No, it does not seem to be related to pain medicines.
I think you are getting an infection and inflammation at the surgical site and it is highly recommended that you review to your surgeon as soon as possible to sort out the matter and if needed escalate/start antibiotics and off-course start good analgesia.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
