I'm tired all the time and sleep all day, is this normal?

Hi ladies,
I'm 2 1/2 weeks post op and all I want to do is sleep. On a typical day, I get up at six go back to bed at 8, get up at 11, go back to sleep at 1, then up again at 3 or so only until after dinner, then back off to bed. Everything wears me out. I haven't been on any pain meds for over a week now. Anyone else have this problem? Oh, I did pass out in the shower this morning, but I think it's due to low weight. Help!!

I'm just a few days behind you, but still on pain meds. I am sleeping a lot, but NOT sleeping well at night, I'm up every hour and a half or so, therefore I think the naps are needed.
But passing out in the shower? Not good, you can really get hurt! Are you anemic? I would let the dr. know that that happened, and make sure you have someone close by when you are in the bathroom. My SIL hit her head passing out in the bathroom years ago, and the result was devastating, so be careful, ok?
Call the dr., get those red blood cells checked, and drink LOTS of fluids in the meantime. If you pass out again, get yourself to the ER and get checked out, you may need some fluids.
Keep us posted, I'll be worried about you!

Being tired is to be expected. But I'm worried about you passing out in the shower. Not good. Call your doc please.

Kathy,

I agree that the being tired is perfectly normal. Your description sounds exactly like my life at 2-4 weeks post-op.

But, I agree with everyone else you should talk to your doctor and let him/her know that you passed out. That's something they need to know, and they need to find out what the cause is.

take care.

Call your doc ASAP about the passing out thing...could be something important you don't want to overlook.

As for the constant sleeping...sounds normal. I still sleep alot and I am entering my third week post-op.

I was up yesterday from 11 am till 11 pm with no nap... resting though walking a bit sitting alot, waiting for my hematoma to pass.... today I am paying, it's 4:48 and I Just go out of bed to shower,nasty night sweats, and to try to get going... I have slept on and off all day. Today is day 17 for me. I do pain meds on and off... none today yet, but into the eve. I am sure I will need one. Your body heals at rest, so let it happen.
Call the Dr. about passing out though, could you be hypoglycemic??

hi Deb,
Thanks so much for asking..I'm doing very well, although I still tire easily. The passing out in the bathroom was from of all things, dehydration. I was dieting before the surgery and my electrolytes were low and the surgery sent them into a tailspin. I'm drinking lots of Gatoraide and feeling much better.
Thanks again for asking. I hope you are doing well, too.

Too wierd... I was on the SouthBeach and dropped alot for me anyway, right before surgery, but gatorade is in the house ALL the time I've been drinking that since I came home... gallons of it. I am glad to hear you are fine. I go to find out about the hematoma today... to see if they will have to go back in. Keep in touch.
