is it common to run a fever with a spleen injury?

Posted by tinksmom168

My 19 year old nephew was in a car accident 6 days ago.  He broke the C5 disk in his neck, and 5 ribs. When the ribs broke it cut his pancreas, liver and spleen.  The pancreas and the liver have stopped bleeding, but the dr's had to insert a tube in his left lung, because it started filling up with blood.  That is better, but now he is running a fever.  Is this normal?? The Doctors aren't saying anything and we are worried...
