Fever after shoulder dislocation...Common or complication?

Posted by amac

Is it common to have a fever following a shoulder dislocation?  The dislocation occurred 2 days ago, went to ER to have shoulder put back into place, shoulder has remained immobilized, taken a few Vicotin, pain still persists but does not like the way the pills make him feel.  Woke up this morning with chills and thought it may be from the medication, however, now has a fever.

Is this normal, or cause for concern?

Thanks, in advance, for you help.
