I had septoplasty and turbinate reduction surgery 9 days ago. The procedure went well and since i've had the splints removed 2 days ago, my breathing is significantly improved. The problem is I am suffering from horrible headaches (not something i was prone to prior to surgery), night sweats, chills, fatigue, general body aches and just general flu-like feelings without the actual fever.
I thought is was from the vicodin, but i haven't taken any for over 4 days. My PCP suggested it's related to inflammation and cytokines and it should ease up over time. I'm really uncomfortable and can't seem to find any definitive information about my post op experience.
