Fever after tummy tuck

17 days post tummy tuck surgery. Drains came out today. I have 100.3 fever. Dr gave me antibiotics today for pinkness/infection near right drain site/groin. I can’t wait to feel better and stand straight. Has this happened to anyone?

    Hope you feel better

    My ps had to give me antibiotics also when he removed my drains @14 days post tummy tuck, because of redness no fever, just as a precaution

    Mine have a 500mg once a day for 30 days antibiotic for prevention. Since I had mine out of the country

    Yes my left drain came out a week after my surgery, the one on the left had to stay un for a couple more weeks..I had to go in because I had a reaction to the tape amd it became infected so i was put back on antibiotics for another two weeks..everything great now, ive been using the garment for going in three weeks after tummy tuck.
