Nearly five months post hysterectomy: fitness struggle

From Hysterectomy Recovery (post hysterectomy)

I had TAH in September 2016 and went on HRT four weeks later. I was doing really well in recovery, walking a couple of miles daily including fairly major hills and living life as normal. In the last couple of weeks I've been getting tired quicker and breathing hard after walking half the distance I was. Has anyone else experienced a decline in fitness after a post-surgery rise? It's making me feel bad emotionally and a little embarrassed when I'm out sometimes. For example the escalator was broken in a shop so I went up two flights of stairs and was puffing at the top. This has never been the case before. All advice/words of wisdom welcomed. Hope you're all having a great day :)
