Everything else seems to be healing as expected and on schedule. I do have a borderline autoimmune disorder (acts like lupus, but still watching bloodwork to get final differential diagnosis). Should I be concerned? "Normal" temp for me is 97.5.
I'm 15 Days Post-op Rhinoseptoplasty and Still Running a Low Grade Fever (99.5--100). Is This Common?

Normal low grade fever post rhinoplasty
It is not uncommon to have a low grade temperature following any type of surgery. As long as you followup with your Doctor things should be fine.
Post Rhinoplasty with low grade temperature
I would continue close follow up with your surgeon and rule out any underlying factors that may be causing your low grade temperature. Lab work should be ordered and see if a proper diagnosis can be made. Best regards and wishing you a speedy recovery. Michael V. Elam, M.D.
