    You need to contact your doctor immediately. If he is not available, go to the emergency room where you had your surgery or the closest one.

    I am glad that you sought help and that you have negative test results. However, if you are still experiencing these same symptoms, don’t let it rest. Keep going back until they find the answer.
    Good luck to you.
