When to Call Us

Call your surgeon if:

  • You’re nauseated and cannot drink fluids
  • Your pain medication is not managing your pain
  • You have symptoms that may mean infection — these include a fever over 101.5 degrees or if your incision has drainage, a bad odor, redness, increased pain, or red streaks leading from it
  • You have bright red blood soaking through an incision dressing
  • You’re unable to urinate (pee) or have a bowel movement (poop), especially if you also have swelling or pain in your lower belly

You or your caregiver should call 911 if you:

  • Pass out (lose consciousness)
  • Have severe trouble breathing
  • Develop sudden chest pain along with shortness of breath
  • Cough up blood
