Ceserean fever for five days, loss of appetite, throwing up

Patient

Q: I've had a fever for 5 days
(sat - wed) on day 4, I threw up three times. I wanted to go to the clinic but it was past midnight when my husband was able to take me so we didn't go. On day 5 I felt better in the morning but that night was a horrible high fever. I never checked my temperature except for the time that I thought that I had no fever and even then I had a fever of 103.7 Today I am feeling better my temperature is at 99.8 (but I do not want a repeat of day 5 when I would have gone to the clinic but didn't go just to be sick that evening). By the way, I had a ceserean about three weeks ago. Do you think that I have an infection? Should I go to the doctor or clinic?
