I had fat necrosis removed on 8/14/12. I've been having fever/chills along with fatigue and feeling like I'm going to pass out. I was admitted into the hospital and put on numerous ATB's still no relief. Can anyone help?
Fever/Chills After Fat Necrosis Removal from my Buttocks?

Fat necrosis, infection
You seem to have bad infection. The antibiotics alone may not be enough.
You need a sonogram or MRI of the buttocks to see if there is any abscess, loculation that need to be drained. If so, surgical drainage is needed.
