Dizziness Dilemma

Hi, I am 9 days post-op of a TVH and I am experiencing dizziness that is just awful. Felt it yesterday too, but today it is so much worse. I'm eating so-so, getting fluids and rest so why is this happening?

I have also been experiencing dizziness especially when getting up too quickly or bending over. I had a TVH same day as you. I think it is because our blood is concentrating on the healing areas. And so there is maybe a little less elsewhere, which can cause you to get lightheaded and dizzy especially when getting up out of a laying position. I don't know for sure this is the reason, but wanted to post that you are not alone in feeling this way. Angela

I had dizziness also at almost 2 weeks. I felt it on and off for a couple of days and then it was gone. If it went on any longer I was going to call the dr. I would just lay down and rest when it happened.

I had the same thing for several weeks postop, then it went away on its own. I was concerned about low blookd pressure or anemia, but had neither.

Wow! Seems like I always find people with my same problems when I read this board. I too have had dizziness when I stand up, etc. I'm on high blood pressure meds and thought maybe my BP was too low. The theory of the blood going to the "healing" areas makes sense. I guess it's just another side effect in the post op period!

Hi... I am nearly 20 days post op and have still had dizziness..prob started a week ago...hopefully it will go away soon. I think that the fatigue alone, caused by surgery is enough to cause it. Hang in there!

I am 7 weeks post op and the dizziness for me has gotten better with time. If you are on HRT you might want to ask your doctor and make sure it's not that because that can be a side effect of some HRT. Hope you feel better soon!

I've had a couple spells of dizziness. I don't think it's atypical. Safety note - from a reclining position, sit first and let your BP normalize, then stand slowly. Make sure you have something nearby to hang on to in case you lose your balance. Proper hydration is very important. Best wishes.

My lightheadedness was due to me getting up too fast, showers being too warm (put a chair in the shower after that scare!), and the percocet. The percocet made my head spin with even the slightest turn of my head. It's been over 5 weeks for me and it has really subsided. Hang in there!
