chills/fever after colonoscopy

Yesterday, after my colonoscopy, I had chills, slight fever, and nausea for several hours. I read later that if you have those symtons you should go to the ER. What causes that and should I still be concerned over that reaction even though I am better today?

The concern is that there might have been a perforation. You are better today? So that's probably not it.

Ummm . . . was it your first? The stress of the day. (Not only psychological . . . it is a physical stress also.) Something along those lines.

Re: chills/fever after colonoscopy

You can always put a calll into your doctor for reassurance, but I would have to agree with auntjudy...how are you feeling now? Back to regular activities, no fever, eating and such?
