sleeping all the time is that normal

I was wondering if I am sleeping too much too. I am completely drained, I have been making myself get up and do a few things here and there. I completely wore myself out just taking a shower. I made myself walk outside for the first time today for about 5 mins. But other than that I just want to sleep. :timeup:

I had my TAH/BSO on Feb 16th and I slept a lot that first 2 weeks too. The first week that is mostly what I did when I got home. I was in the hospital for 3 days post op and just slept while I was there.

Enjoy the sleep while ya can lol, I slept for what I thought was too much the first 2 weeks, when I hit the 3rd week I started having restless nights, then got to where I couldnt sleep, now I find myself wishing i could sleep atleast half as good as I did the first 2 weeks, rest is what we need to heal up good, so rest rest rest and good luck and speedy recovery to ya

Sleeping alot is normal after surgery. Your body is going through alot. You do need to rest.

When I first had my surgery I remember showering made me tired.

Listen to your body and rest.

as our signs here say


I hope your recovery continues to go well

Yep, I'm still sleepy 4 weeks out, but I don't sleep as much. Remember, when we sleep is when our body repairs itself, so sleep away!

i slept for about 4 straight weeks following surgery. i'm nearing my 3rd month marker and i am just now starting to feel *normal* like i have energy to make dinner and walk after work. just about the time you go back to work you may hit another wall...the first two weeks back at work wore me OUT!!

get plenty of rest while you can. remember that your body is healing up while you sleep. enjoy your time resting so that when you're back in the game you'll be feeling better than ever and you'll be so glad that you got the rest you needed!
