New here sleep question

So I had a lavh on Monday Jan 30th and feeling pretty good so far. Still taking ibuprohen and percocet when needed. I had a total hyst done and still so tired. Is that normal? I wad reading a lot of women have trouble sleeping but I could seriously sleep all day. Had both ovaries removed and no hormone changes yet either. I have my 1 week check up on this wed so will ask doc when I see him. Thanks and so happy I found this site!

Re: New here sleep question

Yes you will find there are many "camps" of us - some of us are short energy, some are not. Some of us cannot sleep at night, some of us cannot sleep longer than a couple hours, some can sleep day and night. Some of us have pain and some of us do not. This is one surgery that each body will react and will react in it's own way. That is one thing that is nice about the recovery date threads if everyone will start talking about what they are experiencing you will find similarities in your group too. But if everyone is shy on sharing it may be hard to see the "other" groups. So go ahead and start sharing in the thread called " Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Jan 30-Feb 05,2012" It is a sticky at the top of the post op page right now. You will get a lot of tips from that and heads up of things that you may be a couple days later experiencing than someone else. Welcome to the group!

Re: New here sleep question

I had mine on the 31st and all I want to do is sleep too. If I walk around the house too much I get super tired.

Even if I dont take my Lorcet I get tired easily.

I didnt have my ovaries taken out but oh man am I on a roller coaster of emotion and it sucks!

I had a total hyst on Jan 30th as well. And they found severe stage 4 endo on the left side of my abdomen. I am off work for 6 weeks and super tired, can hardly do anything. The first few days at home I had no problem sleeping but now I'm awake, exhausted but can't sleep when I want to. I hope this phase of recovery passes soon.

Re: New here sleep question

I am about 2 months out now, but I was on a cycle of only comfortable enough to sleep about 2 hr intervals. That went on about 2 weeks and slowly got more hours in scattered in the day. I do have bouts now but the exhaustion usually does me in. I can try to push through for few hours but the mind then goes numb. Lol it does get easier, hang in there!
