Call it in! The doctors on the Mayo line are awesome, just tell them you wanted to be safe rather than sorry. They may send you to the ER or Urgent Care but at least then you'll know it is the right thing to do. If you need antibiotics they can tell you what is safe to take. They set up the call system so we can access the help we need, especially if we are afraid. The Mayo team wants your liver and kidney transplants to last for decades, call them, you'll feel better and they will know exactly what to do.

That's one of the first questions my doctor asks at an appointment "have you had any fever?). They are always concerned as that can be the first sign of infection or rejection. I have always been told to monitor myself and if the fever gets too high for a day or more to go to the ER. I was subscribed Septra for the 12 months after surgery. I take a fever pretty seriously if it doesn't come down after 24 hours.
