When do you stop being so tired?

Hi everyone,

I am 3 months out from my surgery and I still need LOTS of sleep at night... tired at the end of the day and many times tired when I wake up.

I did have an iron deficiency before my surgery and although my levels are better, I am still exhausted - the more I do the longer I do it the more exhausted for a longer period.... even tho I think I am pacing myself.

Last weekend I did NOTHING just to get my energy back because I was just exhausted. And I found it depressing because I was doing better.

The good news is that you have great days followed by down days. AS you heal it seems like you will have more good days and less bad days. But it seems that we need more time.

I have had my iron and thyroid checked. Basically, it is major surgery and it takes your body 6 to eight MONTHS to really get on track.

Going back to work at 4 weeks is just crazy talk. At 8 weeks I went back and felt mentally and physically exhausted.

It's not just in your head... like I thought it was just in mine!!

So I am going to take my own advice and keep on pacing myself and resting when I can.

Wow...I never imagined the toll this surgery would take on our bodies and the length of recovery behind it. I guess this is a good way to learn how to build patience. I always knew what these parts of our bodies did, but today, now that they are gone,I am learning how much more they kept our our bodies in check.

Thank you everyone.
Sounds like I really need to work on the patience part (that's not one of my strong suits).
