horrible fatique before surgery

has anyone else had to go into surgery with extreme fatique and /or weight loss. I have been having a problem for almost a year with my stomach (gastro paresis). I have lost weight until I am almost to a danger point. I am wondering how much more weight and energy I will lose after surgery. Any thoughts so welcome.

horrible fatique before surgery

I too was horribly tired and had nausea for weeks prior to my surgery, my hyster was due to adno and allen master's syndrome.

I was so tired, all I could do was to work, come home, ask DD to make something for dinner, then go to bed. I lost over 35 lbs in two months time.

I had TAH on 1/7/05. I have lost about another 5 or so lbs since surgery due to the meds making me feel "not hungry". I think that is normal. I am now 5 weeks today post op, I still have to remind myself to eat and rest, because quite frankly, I got out of the "habit" of eatting. My husband will remind me to eat or bring me something at work for breakfast. Just a small thing of yogurt each day may help.

I told my doc about being tired and he gave me a shot of B-12, I didn't really notice a difference, but at least my doc knew what I was feeling and knew to check on my "tired" level the next time I saw him.

I am still tired, but that is to go away in time I am sure.

The best suggestion I can offer is to talk to your doc. They have a wealth of info at their fingertips and aren't afraid to use it.

horrible fatique before surgery

I was extremely fatigued (anemia) and underweight, nauseous and not eating much at all before surgery (fibroids). And I wasn't exercising either, needless to say.

Once I got home, I was eating for all of hystersisters for about 3 weeks just to make up lost ground, and I've been eating well since without any appetite problem, that's for sure.

I'm not at all anemic anymore - my last blood count was 15.2, and I weigh 15 lbs more than I ever have in my life. My friends say I look MUCH better. I do still have quite a bit of fatigue and I think I've had a fairly slow recovery because of the condition I was in just before surgery - I felt like I was climbing out of a pretty deep hole at first, but I feel better all the time.
Hope you will too!

I know how you feel as far as being tired. For about the last six months I go to work come home, make supper and fall a sleep on the couch until 9 then I go to bed and sleep most all night. surgery is a week away and I am hoping the exhausted feeling will go away as I heal.

Keep resting and I'm sure you will be feeling better soon.

horrible fatique before surgery

Its good to know that I'm not alone on this. I am almost always dragging my tail behind me. I am also anemic and going in for adeno, plus other things.... Hard to reconcile going to bed before Primetime TV starts!! lol But I've found if I try to eat better through the day, I tend to stay alert a bit longer in the evenings. Eating can be a bit of a chore these days though since nothing ever sounds good. Although I had some fresh blueberries and cream cheese on a bagel last night that was to DIE for!! hahaha
I hope you all feel better soon and best of luck in your castle visits! Keep me posted!
