Lightheadedness, Dizziness, Feeling Faint at 4 weeks post-op

I am concerned. Last night, I became extremely lightheaded and . I could barely stand or walk without feeling like I was on the verge of going down.

I woke up this morning feeling the same. I thought it might be low blood pressure so I stopped a local pharmacy and took my BP. It was 110/70. Not so low that I should have these symptoms according to the pharmacist and what I have read online.

It has gone on throughout the day. I feel so weak.

Anyone else feeling this way? Wonder what is up?

Hi Becky:

Are you taking iron supplements? It could be possible that you are anemic. I get those symptoms when I need to up my iron.

Hope you feel better soon.

I am not taking iron - haven't been anemic for a while. Thought no more periods, no more anemia.

Can I just add that this was a sudden onset...I have felt pretty as far as anemia even months pre-op...I am baffled.

I'm at 2 1/2 weeks post-op and at my 2 week appointment I told my DR I'm having the same symptoms. She said it was my ovaries being gone and my body adjusting. She told me to take B complex and One a day vitamins. I've read that even if you still have your ovaries, they don't act right after surgery so that could be what' s going on. We all have different time tables for how we recover. So just a thought. I get very light headed and I feel like I'm in a fog most of the time.

Thanks WV. I have been in a fog most of the time since the surgery but this is way different. I think I may call my dr. tomorrow if it continues.

haven't you mentioned that you've lost a lot of weight since your surgery? are you getting enough nutrition to support both your healing and getting back to work?? keep up the fluids and chat with your doc if this keeps up- be well!!

since it continued today, you really should have called your dr. feeling so weak that you can barely stand or walk a month after an lsh should be reported to your dr.

Jazzy - I only wish I lost weight . After all the swelly belly and such went down, I found that I had gained a pound and the scale hasn't changed in weeks...At least I am not gaining I suppose.

dressedinblue - I plan to call dr. in the am if I still feel this way. My 4 week post-op is not until Feb 18...more like a 6 week but he calls it 4 week...haha Drs and their schedules.

Thanks everyone for the advice. I am going to lay down...
