Re: Tired and not anemic

i think just having fibroids can make you tired -- you're carrying extra weight around with you. and.....are you depressed? because that can definitely make you tired too.

i hope you feel better soon...

Re: Tired and not anemic

I was 122 pounds at the dr yesterday.. sporting three oranges and a plum. I cant wait to find out how much my uterus weighed after my hysterectomy... nah, Im not depressed... Im keeping my dr laughing making fun of my own indignities. I dont know whats the matter with me... hopefully there will be a pre-op appointment very soon and she'll have an idea why I feel like this.

Re: Tired and not anemic

I'm not anemic but am iron deficient. That can absolutely cause fatigue. Though I'm sure all the extra "fruit" in your belly isn't helping either! I had no idea that anemia and iron deficiency were two unique things until recently.

Re: Tired and not anemic

I didnt know that either... Im going to ask at the next appointment... I love the fruit analogy... when the ultrasound tech said to me, "Well, there are four of them... three oranges and a plum"... I looked around and said, "Im waiting the bells and lights to start going off and 100 quarters to come shooting out of my hoo hoo" ... Im not going to let it take my sense of humor

Re: Tired and not anemic

My number one complaint to both my GYN and the Oncologist was severe fatigue. I too deal with fibriods and other female issues that also have fatigue as a symptom. At my first appointment before it was determined that i would need a TAH/BSO she put me on Wellibutrin XL and that helped the fatigue and emotional rollercoaster I was on. It did not take it away completely but it does help some. Hopefully after surgery my energy will be restored. It is hard to explain to those that have never eperienced this kind of fatigue just how life altering it can be. I hope that you find the answers soon. Please let me know how things continue to progress with you. The best of luck!

I have 1 Fibroid "GOLFBALL" LOL! And I too am tired, ALL the time.Im usually low iron, but i take my vitamins everyday. In my opinion my fatigue has to be because of the fibroid and the problems it's causing. Plus I get wore out just from all the pain. Maybe other women here can give some insight on this.Hope you get some answers.

Re: Tired and not anemic

Pain and stress can take it's tole. It also causes sleep disturbances. You may not feel stressed out, but I imagine that subconsciously there is some.

Even though I typically get plenty of sleep, I'm tired all the time. Cramping, Back pain, hip, leg and joint pain and menstrual migraines. With the exception of the migraines, the pain is all uterine/fibroid related. With luck, the migraines will be reduced in frequency, intensity or both - Maybe even go away all together!

I plan on being superwoman by the end of the year :-)

I wish I could post a picture with my profile... I want to be that Chiquita banana lady with the big fruit hat on her head

Im still waiting to be scheduled... my own gyn cant do this particular procedure so itll be someone Ive never even met. I plan to announce in the o.r. that I expect a phone call the next morning telling me you had a nice time and you still respect me... and flowers would be nice, lol.
