Since my second round of reconstructive surgery on December 11, my body temp is all over the place! Even now, I run a fluctuating daily low-grade temp (99 -101.1). No, it is not related to the reconstruction per se. I have been checked out twice for possible infection. I have been advised that it is likely that the temperature is related to my body's post-surgical healing process. That's cool (nah...not really).
The question I cannot find an answer to, as yet, is: is it possible that my new prosthetics are the cause of my chronic feeling of being cold? I am experiencing a biting, right down to the bone, coldness. Recall, I live in Arizona. It is 74 degrees today! The coldness actually emanates from my breast area and then sweeps my entire body. This occurs in hourly waives! My youngest is quite amused. Being a frenetic 8 year old boy his body temp is always a toasty 150 degrees +/- fahrenheit! He bounces around me and encourages me to place my icy hands on his neck and belly -- which then sends him into throes of laughter.
Now THAT is cool!
