Problems after surgery may occur suddenly or over a period of time. The child may experience any or all of the following complications:
Fever (greater that 101 degrees F)
Redness and swelling along the incision areas
These complications require prompt evaluation by your child's surgeon. The healthcare team educates the family after surgery on how to best care for their child at home, and outlines specific problems that require immediate medical attention.
