Had surgery for deviated septum, adenoids and turbinate reduction. Fever, greenish mucus discharge, vomiting. Are these normal?

I had surgery for my deviated septum , adenoid removal and a turbinate reduction about a week ago and I had a fever (about 100) the day after and then began seeing cold like symptoms such as green mucus drainage, congestion and headaches daily. I have no energy, very shaky and last night after being out of the house all day, I got a sudden pain in my stomach and puked. This morning I had a nose bleed I was wondering if these are normal post-surgery symptoms or if I should contact my doctor

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding cold like symptoms grenish mucus, nasal congestion, headache, pain and nose bleed after one week of surgery for deviated nasal septum, enlarge adenoides, and turbinate reduction. As you said you are feverish also.

Your all above features indicating for development of secondary infection. Idealy you should contact your operating surgeon and physician for proper management of this situation.

In the meantime you can take broadspectrum antibiotic, analgesic, haemostatic and decongestant.
