hi i had THR on friday march 30th ....anterior approch..
everything is perfect except for this low grade fever from 98,5 to 100,5 and constant headache.
From what i have been reading its part of the course and we should not worry about it...
i am surprised that your fever is still nagging you after 28 days...
it can t last foreever....
Have you tried cool showers as a way to bring down your temp?
