Surgery for aortic dissection done. Have hot and cold body temperature. Is this normal?

Herat surgery for aortic dissection a few weeks ago. Now home and body temperature is wacky. One minute I m hot, the next I m freezing (actual temp is normal, just feel hot or cold ). But, even when I feel freezing - sometimes my face feels so hot it actually gets itchy. Is this normal in any sense? Thanks! Also, is it normal for the pain to be worse at night. I can t seem to find any real definite info online ad don t go to see the dr until feb 11.

Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
This is not normal but it probably dont indicate anything serious. In worst case it could be infectin of aortic graft but you would have some more serious symptoms. Secondly,it may indicate some other infection,such as kidney or uroinfection. So i suggest to do basic blood work and check inflamatory markers.
Wish you good health. Regards
