Help – I Can’t Sleep!
Browse through our post-op forum and you will find that insomnia after hysterectomy is a complaint of many of our HysterSisters members. Here is one such member who asked for help – and received lots of great advice:
Ladies, its been 3 weeks since surgery, lap haven taken all but cervix, repairs and bladder sling. I have had insomnia since the surgery. When I went to the Dr for my first check he said, its all hormonal, sleep when you can since you wont be going to work. So that is what I have been doing, but being awake all night and then about 5 am dozing off due to exhaustion for about 2 hours and then a 2 hour nap in the afternoon is just not doing it. I went to sleep at 10 last night only to wake up at 1:30 and have been up since, I have a dentist appt at 10:00 am so took a shower to get ready and I am totally exhausted. Have any of you ladies experienced this and if so can you give me any ideas?
