fatique after hysterectomy

Hysterectomies are major operations, so fatigue after is something that I realised would be a factor. And fatigue also can have a psychological component, too. We have been through a lot, you know!

But, that said, iron deficiency is really common - have you been checked for this? And remember, if you do take an iron supplement, you need to have one that also contains a stool softener or something like that. Iron pills by themselves are instant constipators! Also, you might want to take, if not already, a complete multivitamin pill.

And, I truly believe that moderate (or gentle) exercise leaves us feeling more energised, and not enervated or fatigued. But, check with your doctor first. And, as it is summer, the temp. can also lead to more fatigue. For e.g., it's 107 degrees F. here today (all factors considered - 42degrees C.) and that kind of heat can really enervate/fatigue a person, but I just put one foot in front of the other, and, before I knew it, had walked two miles, and felt energised after.

Hope this helps.
