Shivers and Extreme Fatigue 3 Weeks After Surgery- Why?

Shaking chills after srugery suggests an infectious process going on. I would contact your doctor immediately and follow-up with him. Your symptoms are not common after surgery.

Shivers and Fatigue
Thank you for the question.
Your description of your symptoms is very concerning. I would suggest IMMEDIATE consultation with a physician in person, even if it requires an emergency room visit. You need to rule out an infectious etiology causing the “shivers and fatigue”.

Thanks for the post. The first thing you need to rule out is infection. Infection can occur between 1-3 weeks after surgery and can be associated with fever and chills, as well as redness, warmth, increased swelling and tenderness at the surgical site. This needs to be evaluated in person by a physician.
