Q.

post operative complication of an appendectomy

Hi there. I had an appendectomy about 3 weeks ago. The procedure went well and so did the recovery up until about 5 days ago when i removed my stitches. I started getting some wierd abdominal cramps on thursday last week and did not have much of an appetite and started vomitting on Friday. I went to my gp and she assured me that it is a stomach bug and gave me medication to treat it (antibiotics incase of inflamation, pills for nasea aswell as pills to minimalise the cramps) and it all worked well but the cramps did not go away completely. Today (monday) i did not feel well but i took some pain medication which seemed to help but i started getting a fever. It is still not sore when i press on where the appendix has been removed. Should i be worried??
