In brief: Call the office

an elevated body temperature might occur during the first day or two.
Be sure to have him drink plenty of fluids and get out of bed to walk around two or three times a day. If fever persists you need to call the surgeon's office. If there is to increase the dose of any meds also consult with the prescribing doctor.
