Fever & heache fasciotomy

Hi, My mom recently sustained a major leg fracture and has undergone REVASCULARIZATION with fasciotomy to the right leg. The docs few of the muscle have Necroted. She has no discharge from the wound. But she runs 101 fever with headache but with combiflame twice a day she is relieved from fever and headache. No other symptoms. Do we need to worry about infection? She is currently on high power antibiotics twice a day(tazact).
