Welcome @nlvmostwanted, frequent fevers, shaking and leakage sounds like something that needs medical attention. Do you have a number you can call to contact the surgeon or symptom management nurse?

I'm also tagging other members like @blueviolet @grc10 @kathyoung @troyhenn22 @ono who have had surgery for diverticulitis and who may have some helpful advice to offer.

Don't hesitate to call your father's surgeon.
