Time Sensitive/ Tiredness please help!

Well this is my first post here. I had a TVH with repair work July 10th so I guess that makes me 14 or 15 weeks post-op. Going into this I already had self-diagnosed chronc fatigue syndrone. I came down with that 7 years ago. I had all the symptoms including the typical onset of CFS. I just did not continue going to doctors because number one I did not want to be anyones human pin-cushion and it was going to be so expensive to continue searching. My Hemocrit level going into surgery was also low.
Because my out of pocket max for insurance has been met I am going back to my Primary doctor Tomorrow. (Wednesday) First off to get some allergy medication as I am living on Drixoral for a Sinus problem and second of all to have blood work done to see if there is anything else wrong. I am napping everyday 4 hours and just dragging. I have gone back to my old habit of drinking caffeine all day for an energy kick or I honestly don't think I could make it. I want my life back! I had my GYN. do a horomone test. It was not individual horomones but I think it was called a
FSH/FLSH test? The nurse said it came back normal but I know normal can have a broad range of levels, too. I had been on Birth Control pills for about 8 weeks prior to surgery because periods wth a prolapse was so bad pain wise. I also always had pain with ovulation but have not had that since surgery. (He didthe tests at 5 weeks post) Do any of you have any recommendations as to what blood tests I should makesure to request or what you think he will run tests for? I had wanted to give blood because of the war but my DH said that would be fool hardy so I didn't. Any help you all can give would greatly be appreciated. I have never been over here and just sort of wandered over. Thanks!

"road less traveled"

Hi Sheri, I just thought I'd suggest you might post over on "Road less traveled" and "hormone jungle" as they have more viewers. I wish I could help you but I have no clue about blood tests, etc. But I'll bet there you'll find someone to help. Good luck.

Hi Sheri,

Sorry you are feeling so poorly! I had a similar experience after the birth of my last daughter. I was older and even though the pregnancy was normal, the physical stresses of pregnancy and delivery sent my body into a tail spin. I went to several doctors to get to the bottom of my problems, and eventually a very smart doctor found that I had severe food allergies. A special diet and allergy treatments got me back to feeling good.

Since you are going to your primary care doctor tomorrow, be sure to tell him in detail how you are feeling. You may want to call his office beforehand and talk to the appointment secretary and ask her to make a "long" appointment for you so the doctor will have the time to really listen and won't be feeling time pressure. Sometimes it takes some creative diagnosing to get to the bottom of "tiredness."

You can check with your doctor about the hormone test, but it sounds a tho they did a TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) which usually will diagnose a thyroid problem. However, a total thyroid panel is really a better indicator. If you have low thyroid, you will usually be more tired than normal.

Good luck tomorrow. Stay in touch. I'll be thinking of you.

Hi Barbara-- It wasn't a TSH they did but a FSH which is a follicle stimulating horomone whatever that is.

I am sorry I have no suggestions other than doing a search on the internet for Chronic Fatigue Syndrom. I really pray your dr can order the correct tests and get you some answers ASAP.
Please let us know what you find out tomorrow
