went back to work today, worked full day. feels fine. This morning he had some hot oatmeal and after eating that said that he felt very warm. took temp. had none. temp
normal. this scared us a bit and has been on my mind.

He sees the surgeon on thurs. morning.
Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

eating hot oatmeal will make you feel warm. I don't think this is a bad sign.

no fever and temp is a good sign.

if bowel movements are normal, I would not worry about it.

and you can bring it up to his surgeon thursday.

but just like after eating hot soup or hot food, you can feel warm after eating hot food.

this is not a sign of post surgery problems.

let me know if you have questions.
