I had a TT that went well, despite my giant Thyroid.... minimally invasive and ebullient that I went through with the surgery and came out alive. Now I've had afternoon and evening fevers from 99.2--99.9. If I took a single Tylenol I would not have any fever but I'm a stubborn old goat. Morning, the fever is gone until afternoon. Day 2 of this.
I'm not feeling too bad. But the low fever goes on for hours and hours and hours, never going very high.
Is this a possible side-effect of newly-started synthroid? I just started it yesterday so I wouldn't think so and I have no
other symptoms, in fact I'm working pretty well digestive, breathing, pulse. Taking .125 mcg and I weight about 143.
I'm using Levothyroxine, the generic.... doctor forgot to write dispense as written.
No response from the hospital when I called and mentioned the 99.9 degree reading, my highest. Then again
low fevers are fairly common after surgery. Paul in NY State
I'm not a Dr., but it is common after surgery most likely .. anything over 101 is probably the # stated on your discharge papers but you can call your Dr to confirm. This has been very stressful on your entire body .. it usually is a recovery response in a sense.
Though I certainly understand the stubborn thing, I agree you should go ahead and take the Tylenol. I not only will help the fever, but will help any swelling you might have as well. I'm getting ready to take my own advice. I had surgery on the 18th for recurrent cancer and have a second scar right over my first one. Mine's a bit swollen today, so I'm off to take Tylenol myself.
