Feeling some type of way..woozy all the time

My recovery has been great but I keep getting some weird stuff happening and dont know why. I always feel kinda off, like I am dense in the head(air head), nose ear and lip twitching all the time. I keep getting the feeling like my throat is going to close up but it dont. Got me real nervous. This all came after the surgery. My whole body just seems as if it is just here. I know that dont make sense but that is how I feel. My head feels to heavy for my neck. Anyone experienced this?

Re: Feeling some type of way..woozy all the time

I was total abdominal hysterectomy on Feb 17th and I was off all the pain meds and felt very woozy, airheaded...like I couldn't concentrate on anything. Also I would almost pass out in the shower. I didn't feel anywhere near "normal" until 5 weeks. I also had twitching in my face. Istarted taking calcium citrate supplements and it stopped. Hugs,Michele.

Yes...I did and I didn't take any meds once discharged from hospital...sometimes I would get this whooshy lightheaded feeling...other times felt like my weighed a ton!....still don't know why but it went off and on for about a month like that....my BP was normal, all bloodwork came back normal on my dr visits, a lot of therories so I chalk it up to recovery and hormones (I have both ovaries still)...it gets better

Yes it definately gets better. I really didn't feel well until my 5th week. It's 10 weeks now I think and I am pretty much normal...I was a slow healer and didn't push myself.

Re: Feeling some type of way..woozy all the time

I keep telling my DH my brain is broken. I can't think of any other way to describe it. Things just aren't right. I'm hoping it's just an after effect of the anesthesia, pain medication, and insomnia I've had since surgery.I'm not talking about hormonal crying, this is all strange stuff, concentration,balance, vision , etc.

Thanks! I'm glad its not just me. I thought I was losing it. My husband laughs because when it started happening, I started giving my last will and testament...lol I think my kids think I am cuckoo. It sounds like its just my body adjusting.

Re: Feeling some type of way..woozy all the time

Make sure you are in touch with your doctor. If something feels 'off', call the office and check to see if this is normal. Don't be afraid of being a pest; you are paying your doctor to take care of you. You don't have to wait until your next scheduled appointment to ask questions.

Hope you get back to feeling normal soon.
