View Full Version : Post op head sweats after appendix removal

03-26-2014, 07:32 AM
My husband had emergency surgery Friday to remove his appendix. It's now Wednesday, and he is still very sore and uncomfortable. Didn't have a bowel movement until yesterday, and they are small. For the last two days he is being awakened with heavy sweating on his head. No other part of the body, and he is not running fever. His incisions look good, no noticeable infection, but these head sweats are really worrying him. Any thoughts on what is causing them and how to help him?

Hi, the fact that he has no fever is a good sign but if this sweating continues than it would be best to seek medical attention to rule out any internal infection....

If he is on pain meds that could be causing it,

He took pain medication at first, but hasn't had any in about three days. As the day progressed, he seems to have stopped having symptoms. But we will have to see how the night goes.
