I think age is a factor. I just turned 50 and I see the younger sisters seem to be doing better. I am feeling much better this week. I would like to try and walk but the weather here is crummy and freezing! I find that the more active I am the better I feel. I have to allow for nap time though. I get pretty tired as well. I'm lucky - I am finally sleeping pretty well. I', on a very low dose patch and am having no night sweats or issues like that.
I wish you luck on your continuing recovery. I'm not scheduled to go back to the Dr till 2/9. I think he'll release me for work then.

Prush, Since you are a little closer my age than some I was wondering if you have any soreness at all. If I walk a lot I seem to be really sore & now notice back & leg aching. Now there is the question of how active is too active & I do not think am but perhaps I am. I shower in the morn, get dressed etc & am usually up moving until noon, then I notice soreness & down hill from then on. I had no fatigue for first 4 weeks & only took a nap about first 3 days of being home but am now finding I just feel so tired & sleepy. I find even my clothes touching belly give me a weird sensation & sure hope that goes away at some point. WE have a business at our residence so it is kinda hard to take a complete rest routine

5 weekeers

I was experiencing the leg pain and lower back pain and that was what my doctor said was not normal. He said at five weeks I should have no pain just tired at the end of the day. That was the first sign that something was wrong.

My doctor thought I should have called him about the pain so you may want to touch base. I feel kinda dumb now that I waited until my first post-op. Why do they wait 4-5 weeks to see you if things could be wrong. Maybe the doctor should put a call into the patient or have them check in.

I am suspecting that I have had an infection for several weeks. I will know more tomorrow after the urinalysis comes back.

Actually I feel better now. I get up at 6 and get dd off to school, feed 6 dods, 1cat, and a bird, water all the animals and get DH off to work. Then it's about 7:30. Sometimes I go back to bed till 9 and sometimes not. Then I'm up for the day. Before this week I would just read and do some paperwork, computer time, watch a movie. I have been doing household chores such as laundry, vacuum ( I know I;m not supposed to), mop, dust, dishes and cook dinner. I drove for the first time Monday - just in town. Tonight I drove an hour away and back. I am sore now. I don't notice the back & leg aches. I guess I'm lucky. I have pain after urinating still and my belly gets sore. I try not to lift a lot or turn suddenly because I can feel it pulling then.
I wear one of those support panties when I get dressed. That seems to offer support but by the end of the day the swelly belly makes me want to get back in jammies!
I still get tired - but it's better than before. The first 3-4 weeks I slept and did very little. Now I feel almost normal. I'm sleeping pretty well and not having any menopause symptoms that I notice now except some brain fog. I really think the progesterone cream has helped me a lot. I could be wrong but I noticed a big improvement. It may also help that I'm on a low dose Climara patch (0.05).
I hope you feel better soon. I would talk to the dr though about how you feel. I don't know what''s normal but I would say if you aren't seeing progress, there might be something up.
Good luck!
