Dizziness?

I'm almost 2 weeks post op and I was wondering if dizziness is normal. Every once in awhile I get very light headed almost like I'm going to pass out. Is this normal? I go in to my Dr. on Tuesday for my 2 week post appt. I'll ask him then if it doesn't seem to be normal.

Dizziness?

Well, depends. But, I was dizzy up to 3 weeks post. Not everyday, but it was several times a week. My doc told me in the beginning I would be a bit lightheaded especially since surgery I was anemic.

I haven't felt lightheaded since 3 weeks post and I think the dizziness was due to these 2 factors:

#1---I was anemic
#2-- Side effects from the meds.

Please speak to your doctor about your dizziness because it may be different than my factors above.

Take care. :dance2:

Thanks. I'll ask him then. I haven't been on any meds for about 3 days. They checked me for anemia in the hospital and I was fine then.

Dizziness?

Hi Sam,

I have low blood pressure and my Dr. said that contributed to my post-op dizziness also.

Best wishes,

Mary

Mary,
That could very well be my problem too than. I do have low blood pressure.

Do check with your doctor, there are several different things that can cause you to become dizzy post op. You said that you were off your meds, so that is probably not the cause, but even thought you were checked for anemia, that dosen't necessarily mean that it couldn't be the cause now. -Is it mostly when you stand up or change positions too quickly? I have that problem anyway, and it has been worse since my surgery, standing etc can cause a drop in your blood pressure, and it takes a few seconds for your heart to catch up and your blood pressure to return to normal. -if you are dehydrated that can make it worse too.
Like I said, I have been having more trouble since my surgery, so my doctor wants to check me again for anemia, as well as checking my blood sugar. Since I'm not your doctor, I can't tell you what is causing you to be dizzy, but until you can talk to him, you can try increasing your fluids, eating foods high in iron, and make sure you take your time sitting up or standing.
I'm not much help, but I hope maybe this helps a little anyway. -Let us know what your doctor says!
