Me too!

I thought I was bad off being totally exhausted after 9 weeks. Are you telling me it continues for a couple more months?!?!

Are you sleeping at night? I JUST started getting a full night's sleep 3 - 4 times a week. It's very annoying to be so tired and, yet, not be able to sleep.

Fatique... When does it end?

I am glad to hear I am not the only one. I am 3 months post-op and back to work full time. I am exhausted by the end of the day. I drive about 45 minutes in traffic to get home. By that time I have had it. I have been taking 'power' naps at lunch time. This seems to be helping a lot.
One day I opted to go with the girls to lunch and did I pay for that. I was so tired when I got home that I knocked out by 7:30pm. I then woke up at 2am and could not go back to sleep. I finally dosed off at 4am and had to get up at 5:30. Consequently, the next afternoon I was close to useless. I am sure it gets better but it will take time.
I am finding out what my limits are. I am trying to listen to my body when it says to rest but as many things in life it is trial and error.
All I can say is thank goodness for the weekends. Hang in there!

Fatique... When does it end?


I am 3 months post-op and still quite exhausted. Sleeping 12 hours a night and still wanting naps. I had a thyroid panel done, and my TSH came out to 3.13, which is out of range under NEW guidelines. But the many, many doctors do not know about the new guidelines.

I am telling you this to urge you to get a thyroid panel if you continue to have profound fatigue 3 and 4 months out. And DON"T automatically accept the Dr's proclamation that your values are "normal." Get a copy of your test.

For a treasure trove of info, see www.thyroid.about.com.

Meanwhile, hang in there. Give your body the rest it needs. Just don't assume it's all hyst-related if it just doesn't feel right to you.

Fatique... When does it end?

yes, .. I had thyroid levels checked and they were in the normal range TSH 1.196 ( range of 0.350 - 5.500)
T4 was also normal range of 1.3 (range of 0.6 - 1.8)

Believe me I have been looking for answers everywhere if it is NOT related to the hysterectomy surgery.

Hormone levels are very low and I am currently on Bio-Identical hormonal replacement therapy.
