My husband had day surgery 2 weeks ago Monday to remove some cartlidge from his knee. On Wednesday we went back to the surgeon as he had swelling, sever pain and body aches. After a couple blood tests we went back on the following Monday and they drained some fluid to test and found that he had an infection caused by skin. They did a second surgery on Tuesday night to clean out and have him on antibiotics. He is on hydra-morphine, celebrex and iv antibiotics every 8 hours. He is starting to feel very nauseaus, sick and has chills and fever feelings. I have checked his temperature and it seems okay. Is it possible the antibiotics are not working? Or could all these drugs be making him feel this way?
