Post colonoscopy by 2 days, fever 99.6 wont go down and nausea. Is this normal?

Post colonoscopy by 2 days, fever 99.6 wont go down and nausea. Is this normal?

Probably OK: This is a relatively low-grade temperature. It is impossible to know for certain if it's normal without a detailed history and physical examination. If you are passing gas, and not having escalating abdominal pain, you are probably doing fine.

In the absence of abdominal i would look for other causes for the fever, especially more then 24-48 hours. ...Read more

Husband had colonoscopy this morning..fever started approx. 6 hours after procedure..100.8. No pain just fever..is this normal..fever now 99.6?

Not expected: did he have any interventions done? sometimes with a polypectomy or biopsies there can be some focal inflammation (serositis). the fever could also be a marker of something a lot more serious like a perforation though. keep a close eye on him, and I'd give the gastroenterologist the heads-up sooner rather than later. ...Read more
