Hello,
Did they do any other testing such as a CT scan?
Does she have bowel movements - if so, regular, or diarrrhea?

No on an other testing

She has only had 4 since the surgery two weeks ago and none since friday. She had a small discarge on Saturday but it was extreemly painful.

What kind of hysterectomy - Abdominal (where is the incison if so - horizontal, or midline vertical), or Vaginal, or Laparoscopic?
Where is here pain - all over her stomach, or more lower in the pelvis?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

Her hysterectomy was vaginal, he also pinned her bladder back into a normal position.

Here pain is lower than her stomach. She says her stomach feels fine, other than being nausious.

Hello,
I am sorry about all the questions - is she able to urine without a problem right now?
Any bleeding so far?
What are some of the highest fevers - and HOW often do the fevers occur?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

other than the UTI she has been urinating very often.

No bleeding at all

The highest fever was on friday 103.9 took her to the hospital

Since then about every four hours her temperature will spike around 102.8

Her temperature one hour agou was 100.3 and her tempurature now is 101.0

Hello,
Your wife has a very high likelihood of an abscess, a hematoma, or a urinoma - basically this is possibily what is causing her fevers and these must be drained if this is what she has - and she NEEDS a CT scan to get a proper diagnosis and then to get treated appropirately because you can put as many antibiotics as you want in a person - but with one of these diagnosis, antibiotics will NOT work - so I would HIGHLY recommend getting evaluated for this - and if the ER is NOT helping, she needs to be seen by her ob/gyn who did the surgery no later than tomorrow - ...
