Question - ovaries still asleep  and exhausted ovaries still asleep and exhausted

Hi There, my surgery was April 6, was feeling sorta back to normal, excersizing, eating right, even my libido seemed back on track, but lately I have been just exhausted all the time, and having more problems with dryness, and such....
Help, how long does it take for your ovaries to wake up after surgery? Could it be something else?

Re: ovaries still asleep and exhausted

There really isn't a magic timeframe where the ovaries will wake back up. It can be a gradual process. The fatigue is quite common after surgery, just because our doctors release us at 6-8 weeks post op does not mean that the body is fully recovered.

It would not hurt to give your doctor a call. I feel it is best to let the doctor decide if something is normal for *you* or if something else is going on.

Thanks for replying.
My whole problem is I am without a Dr. at the moment. My surgeon relocated to another state and my gyn, retired the same month.

I guess I will have to see my family Doctor again and take it from there.

Thanks again.

My ovaries woke up in the 3rd month. Once they woke up I felt a little bit better. Hang in there, you will get there. It does just take time.

Dear SeaButterfly !,

Thank you for your input. . I sure hope mine wake up soon. I am going into my fourth month of recovery and starting to worry a bit. A lot of hystersisters said their ovaries woke up in just a few weeks, not months.

I have had sooo much stress, and my surgeon told me that stress will not help my ovaries function properly. Then when I worry about them not kicking back into action well, vicious cycle...lol.

Thank you for you reply.

I do know a few of us it was months. I hope your wake up soon. Take it easy & maybe they will get your message. I am sure they will wake up soon. Hang in there.

Re: ovaries still asleep and exhausted

My Dr gave a low dose of estrogen to take to help off set the heat flashes I had. I did not take it every day but eventually it all leveled out 6 months after my surgery.

Dear Dimple 5,
Thank you so much for replying. It a relief to know it can take up to 6 months for my ovaries to kick back in. I guess I will just have to bite the bullet and find a Doctor who can help me in the meantime.
I am just tired of being tired and hot flashing..lol.

Thank you and hope all is well for you.
