I am 3 weeks post OP from TAH and I continue to have these flashes of dizziness - even when I am sitting or lying down doing nothing. Its like a shudder through my whole body. Anybody else feel something similar?

Yes, I have had dizzieness more than any other symptom. Over pain and all. Even with no meds. I have no idea why but you are not alone. I'm sure some wise sisters will respond though.

Yes, dizziness even without any meds. Good point, makes it all the weirder. My doctor says it is normal, but it it very disturbing to me.

I too had dizziness for a while after my surgery. I'm now 6 weeks post op and the spells are not coming as often. I did talk to my doctor and he also told me it was normal. (Well it's not normal for me and it's very disturbing!!!

What I'm trying to tell you is it will get better. Hopefully, sooner better than later!

It will get better and go away. My doc said it was normal, too, and most likely an after effect of all the medications that have been put into your system (including during surgery). It takes quite a while for them to all clear out.

I have dizziness also..especially when rolling over in bed and getting out of bed in the morning (and first getting into bed at night)
Today was my 2 week post op checkup. I mentioned it again to my doctor and she was clueless.
The dizziness is scarey to me because I've never experienced it.

I have found if I start moving my arms and legs and generally move a bit in bed..then sit up until my head feels balanced..and focus on something straight ahead of me I do ok.

Last night I felt like I was in a waterbed when my husband got into bed (and we dont have one.. For some reason the laying down flat really gets to me.
I should mention I am on blood pressure medication (small dosage)

Here's hoping it starts to go away.

Hi I am 7weeks post op and have been having dizzy spells since week 3. I also have high blood pressure now I have always run low so this is new for me. I have been taking atenol for a couple of weeks now and am still dizzy so today my cardiologist put a 24 hour halter monitor on me to see what is going on. I have had heart problems in the past and have congenital valve disease so it is hard to tell if it is due to the hyst or my heart. Better safe than sorry. I think any dizzyness should be reported to doc.

I am almost 7 weeks post op and have had a great deal of dizziness. Mine is coming from thyroid medicine complications. If you are on thyroid medicine or have thyroid problems, maybe that could be your problem as well. It took me three doctors to get to the real problem!
