Fatigue 3+ Months after Hysterectomy

From the Hysterectomy Recovery Articles List

Fatigue 3+ Months after hysterectomyI went back to work at 6 weeks post-op. It's been 3 months since my hysterectomy now, and I am still exhausted at the end of the day. Is this related to my hysterectomy?


Many HysterSisters report still feeling fatigued during their first year following their hysterectomy. This may be related to the surgery, but it may also be symptoms of other health issues.

If you have had menopause symptoms like hot flashes or sleep disturbance, it may be a hormone problem. Your hormone levels may need to be tested, and you may need to have a conversation with your doctor about hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Having the right balance of estrogen can help you feel better.

Problems with your thyroid can also cause fatigue. Many women, following a hysterectomy and oophorectomy (removal of ovaries) experience problems with their thyroid. If your fatigue persists, talk to your doctor about checking your thyroid. If this is what is causing your fatigue, thyroid medicine can be a tremendous help.

Check with your doctor to discuss your fatigue; then come share what you learn in the HysterSisters Community Forums!
