Help have many questions???

Hello there ladies:
My surgery was oct 5th and i'm still taking many daily naps and sleeping pretty good at night. Anyone else out there? I am down to only one percocet and only b/c i decided since i was home to have surgery last friday on my foot. So basically i'm homebound. I have gone out a few times. The 1st few times i was exhausted to the point i thought i was going to die. Somedays are better than others. So i'm actually uncertain if the pain on my foot is so great that i've neglected the abdomen. My incision looks great i can sleep on either side now. Although still prefer the left. My back and shoulders are achy probably from lack of movement. I have hardly no appetite (maybe b/c I'm sleeping). I have had maybe 2-3 night sweats. (i'm on premarin)Hot flashes a few as well..... I do notice i still get tired easy. How long is this going to last?? I'm due to return to work in three weeks. I work in the medical field so there is lot's of standing, walking, STRESS!! I'm just so confused!! E'm i going to get the hot flashes the night sweats the whole deal all at once??
Thanks in advance for any ones personal advice

Hi Betsy

The exhaustion is something that takes a while to get rid of. You've had a double dose of body trauma, so you've got more recovering to do. Being sedentary is exhausting in itself. You may want to try an iron supplement to help get your energy back up. I think when your foot heals, as you're able to move around more, it will help to increase your stamina too. It sounds like you're healing nicely though!

If you're on Premarin already, your hot flashes and sweats will probably maintain at a level you're already experiencing. If they get to be more frequent or extreme, you might want to contact your doctor. You may just need an adjustment in the dosage. That happened in my case. Rest when you can, and move when you can. It will get better. Peace to you!
