My father met with an accident 10 days ago, he is diabetic.
Initial condition : left leg open injury below knee part having fracture , pelvis fracture , brain swelling.
A plastic surgery done for left leg (debridement) and external rods implanted with in first three days now they are saying as he is diabetic they are waiting for wound healing untill that they will not do surgery for pelvis and internal rods surgery for left leg.
Last 5 days fever is coming they are giving antibiotics, they don't know the reason for fever , some cultures report is also negative. Can some one suggest me what could be the reason for fever, is it a sign of infection and will there be any problem if we delay pelvis survey.
