Why am I getting fever and headache after appendix removal surgery?

I was having some stomach and abdominal pain few weeks ago, I visited the hospital and the doctor said it is appendix (was my first time) I was treated with some antibiotics and the pain subsidized. Feeling more better. But I woke up this morning feeling feverish/headache. Could this be something related to appendix or I need to get some medicine related to fever ? NOTE: I do feel little pain in my belle once a while but not disturbing

Your symptoms seem to be related to appendix infection. I recommend doing an ultrasound and a complete blood count to confirm the diagnosis. If the diagnosis is confirmed you should take another cycle of antibiotics.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I get a low-grade Fever about 30 minutes after eating. I have headaches (head fog) and have had a loss of energy for the past month. I took a week of levaquin 500mg which didn t help. Also, have upper stomach cramps. I take Tylenol daily for the Fever and headaches.

My 17 year old daughter returned yesterday from a week-long trip to Costa Rica. She did not get any vaccines before attending as our doctor said they were not necessary for that area. Today she woke up with a fever, headache, and body aches. Her fever is now 102 even after taking Advil a few hours ago. Do I need to worry about typhoid or malaria or could this be a bug she picked up on the plane?
