This could be anything from normal shivering to a reaction to medications.  The best thing to do is to discuss this with your surgeon. Every situation is unique, and without being involved no one can tell you what happened.  Best of luck to you.

Please call your surgeon to discuss this. They have more information about your procedure and unique physiology that they'll be better at answering your question. All the best.
