When do you stop being so tired?

It's been over 9 weeks now and I have been back to work over 4 weeks and I still feel so tired. I am hitting the bed by 9 or 9:30 every night and before surgery I never was in bed by 11pm. I just can't seem to find my energy. Is this normal?

I am in the same boat. Althoug I just bairly went back to work yesterday. I got home so tired. If it weren't for having to make dinner and hang out with the fam I would have gone straight to bed. I hope it ends soon. I have to work 10 hr days and I need my energy.

I still have the odd day when I feel exhausted and haven't done anything.
My bedtime has changed too.
Now it's between 9 & 10 and it used to be 11.
Maybe it's just the weather making me go to bed earlier....it gets dark so early now.

Thank you all for your post. At least I know I'm not alone. I was about to call the Dr. and ask for blood workup just in case there was a thyroid issue. I have not had any issue in the past but it seems like everything is changing now.

I'm six weeks out, and still tired. Prior to surgery I was anemic and was put on iron. However, at my post-op checkup (3+ weeks), my iron level was back where it was supposed to be. Maybe our bodies are forcing us to rest?????

Only 2 weeks out, but I'm beginning to think about the return to work at 6 weeks. I really am trying to plan ahead, just like for surgery, and plan to have meals made ahead, or at least a game plan for takeout for a few weeks when I go back. I'm also probably going to implement the 'no additional driving for Mom' rule for me DDs, just like I did for the initial 2 weeks post-op

Chipper, our surgeries were only one day apart and I am exhausted almost all the time....yet I cannot fall asleep until around 11:30 and I am up at 6:30....I only work about 15-20hrs a week and sit during the time....guess it takes time..I cannot take iron as it makes me itch like crazy

Maybe a thyroid test should be done, I'm reading a good book and it said that a hysterctomy can mess up your thyroid

I'm sure I put in to many hours at work 10-12 a day but I did that before surgery.
