Sooooo Tired

I'm 3 days post-op and just exhausted. I tried to get up and wash this morning and had to take a 3 hour nap afterwards. Just sitting here I'm thinking about going and laying back down. How long has it taken you to feel more bright-eyed?

Sooooo Tired

Hi Katie Anne:
I am 3 weeks post op on 3/5 and I am still so tired at the end of the day that I fall asleep watching a movie in my chair at night. I can say though that now at least during the day I feel a bit better. At 3 days post op your body is telling you to Your body is the best way to tell what you can and can not do. Take care of yourself right now and believe me you will be better for it later. At one week post op I was feeling the same as you. Everyday gets easier.
God Bless,

Sooooo Tired

Hi Katie Ann,
I am two weeks post op and I am tired all the time. I have to remember to rest and try not to overdue it. I was bleeding this weekend and stayed down all weekend. My doctor told me that it was going to be normal for me to be tired for at least two months, what a drag, you just have to be patient I have discovered. And let everyone around you know how you feel so that they dont expect to much from you.

Sooooo Tired

Hi there, I'm two weeks post op and started feeling periods of brightness about a week after surgery, but every day looking back, the past day felt hazy in my memory. I would say today is my first really clear headed day, but I know I'll be ready for bed by 6 pm as usual! The tiredness is a tough one, but in my experience there is a gradual improvement day to day as long as I don't overdo it. Rest easy!

Just listen to your body, if it tells you it's tired, rest or nap. I'm usually taking at least one nap a week, depending on how much I've been doing. At the beginning you tend to sleep more than being awake, but it does turn around eventually. Take advantage.
