Hi, since u had surgery, you should not stop medicine without completing course. Fever and associated symptoms might b coz of that. Also you risk your operated wound with infection and slow healing by stopping medicine. Vist same doctor and let him evaluatethe wound coz he is the best judge to decide improving or worsening status of wound. Wish you speedy recovery
