    Sweats?

    Did anyone's child have issues with sweating after surgery? I don't know if part of is that Jesse isn't moving around in bed like he used to or if it's a common occurrence. TIA

    Danielle had issues with sweating for the first couple of weeks. She would go from being so hot to freezing cold. I was not very concerned about it as her body had been through so much trauma I just figured it was normal not to mention the drugs and it did stop.

    Normal even in adults.

    I kept a twin sized electric blanket on my king sized bed for the times I got cold. It was easy to kick off when the internal temp flipped ;-).

    It gets better after the first few weeks ... really ;-).
