I had foot surgery on July 31st . Five days

I had foot surgery on July 31st . Five days later I started having diarrhea. I called my doctor.I was told it was a virus. I waited 3 to 4 weeks and went into see her. Blood was taken and a stool sample. The tests came out okay. I still had diarrhea so I was treated with Azithromycin (Z-Pak}. I had to have more stool testing. I came up positive for Lactoferrin. I was put on a bland diet. Seven years ago I had Stage 3 colon cancer.My last colonoscopy was on April 6,2018. The test came out clean. I am very concerned.

For almost two years I had a consistent cough and could not find a cause. It was almost debiliatating. On April 19th I broke my foot and had to have surgery the next day. Since my surgery I have had absolutely no cough and was wondering why. It is wonderful but I m shocked that the cough just disappeared after suffering so much.

I had a foot surgery on Oct. 11 and a week after surgery I began to run a low grade fever (99.5-100.00) which had recurred ever since with short breaks of 2 or 3 days when it will not occur. I start out the day with no fever and as I am more mobile it will begin around 12 oclock to show up and stay all night. I also have body aches and flushed skin, fuzzy thinking. The foot surgeon has no idea why this is happening but did not begin until surgery. If I have a day when I just basically lay around the fever will not occur or occur much later. Wondering if this could be some form of infection or mild sepsis.

I had foot surgery at the first of the month . I was wanting to know if there was any way to speed the healing process . I had a plate put in with 8 screws and what is called a syndesmosis screw I believe . Which has to be removed in another surgery . I am now in a cast which comes off at the first of July an will be put in a boot . Any help would be great thanks . Brenton D
