Hi Everyone!
I came across this great looking site while I was searching for info on exhaustion after a TAH, and a bladder and bowel repair. I had surgery April 18 and did so well post-op.
Now for the past 2 weeks I am so exhausted.

I have fibromyalgia, and was blaming it for the exhaustion, but it is lasting too long.

I would appreciate any comments that others have in regard to exhaustion and how long it lasts.

Hi Jodaraka,
Glad you found us....isn't this just a wonderful site. You will find soooo much support from the wonderful and very knowledgable ladies here.

Sounds to me like you should give yourself a break. You are just barely past a month since your surgery, and with the fibryomyalgia as well, and the additional bowel and bladder repairs, its no wonder you are still tired.

I am 8 months post op TAH, and I can honestly say its only been in the past couple weeks that I truly am feeling 100% energy wise. I had 3 months of chemo so that added to my recovery as well, but I truly think you are being too hard on yourself.

Listen to your body and rest when you need to and I am sure you will notice your energy picking up gradually.

Take care of yourself!!

Take your time

Hi my name is Debbie and I just had my furniture moved around May 15. And like you I want it all to come back right now my energy etc etc. But I have found out thru so many other ladies that its a day by day thing and I need to know my limits. The energy I am told returns gradually to you. Just know your limits and have patience with yourself. HA HA I wish I could tell my self that but I am learning. I had company today and I really didn't do a darn thing and I have to tell you my butt and mind are whipped. So please give yourself a break and know you are not alone in what your feeling.

Best Wishes to you

I am almost 6 months post op. Another week I will be. I feel tired all the time. I know that I'm still healing all the time. It just takes time and depending on what you are doing daily. I work everyday, I take dance lessons, I have 2 little girls, I have to care for the house and cook meals and go to the church. As you can see, I have a full schedule. No wonder I'm tired! You are not alone in being tired here. Hang in there and in time, you will be better soon.

Thanks ladies for the advice. I was told it would be a long process, but guess I did not really think about it.

I saw the gynecologist this pm and all is well. In fact, he is really pleased with the repair job. He also said the total exhaustion is to be expected after any major surgery.

It is good to hear from ladies who really know.
Thanks again for your responses.
