July 30, 2014: ONE WEEK. Wednesday: Drug allergy?

Last evening my temperature was100.2°. This morning it is 98.6°. I slept without supplemental oxygen last night; no problem. Full set of exercises morning and afternoon. And a shower. And change of dressing.

Now I find lots (50) of small red dots, mostly on my back. I called the surgeon’s office and they had no idea what could cause it. Googling “skin rash” with some of my drugs leads to lots of stuff. Maybe I will ease off the pain meds. tonight. A nurse from the hospital just called — routine — and of course I told her all this. She says cut out the pain meds (Oxycontin) if I can, then if no relief, call VSO to see about cutting down the blood thinner (Xarelta).
