I have ischemic colitis due to reduced blood flow to

I have ischemic colitis due to reduced blood flow to lower colon from an Endologix Implant on April 19, 2018. For the past 3 nights I'm having chills that last for 30 to 45 minutes. My temperature runs 96.6 during that time. Is this something I can wait until Wednesday to talk to my GI surgeon about or do I need to see someone right away?

I was recently diagnosed with ischemic colitis. Bacteria was also found in urine testing, so I was treated with antibiotics. I m still experiencing loose stools with sporadic blood. A CTA was done which came back normal. A stool specimen came back fine. There is sporadic pain in lower back and lower left abdomen. The doctors don t seem to have an answer for the cause. Since I have had health issues years back where the physician at the time thought that I have something that goes in and out of remission (which he thought was indicative of lupus -- test came back negative even though I had the butterfly rash) -- How do I find out what to do now?

April 22 I was in serious condition (considered dying) due to blood clots that caused ishemic colitis. Upon arrival i was intubated and that lasted about 36-48 hours. Since then I have an intermittnent cough that produces just a slimey, treadlike saliva not yellow or green. I cough until I gag and then it stops for awhile. Often after coughing I feel a sort of burp in my throat when I bring it up it is a glob of very frothy bubbles of saliva. My heart function and lungs are good and not seen as causing the cough. Any Ideas?

I am 70, female, 5 6 , & 170#. I have controlled hypertension, hyperlipidemia, depression, osteoarthritis, and have had surgery for episodes of ischemic colitis. I have a red, growing, cauliflower like growth that hurts if it is bumped on both the 1st & 3rd joints of my right index finger. Is it some type of wart?
