Feeling out of it

I'm still recovering well physically, but have felt so out of it for two days. Today is day 10 since my surgery, so I don't see how it's still the anesthetics, and I'm only taking Ibuprofen for discomfort.
Having to think about things I want to say, forgetful and my head seems to be in a fog. Had grandkids visit this weekend and I felt nervous and uneasy with the noise and movements of talking and laughing. Is this the hormones leaving my system?

Re: Feeling out of it

It could be some anesthesia still and it is probably the hormones leaving your system. Have a look at our menopause articles as some might help you.

Re: Feeling out of it

It seems to be fairly common to have a foggy brain. I felt quite hyper and unable to focus for most of the 6 weeks of recovery. I was looking forward to reading a few good books in my recovery, but could hardly even read a magazine article.
I'm not sure what causes it - I know I had bleeding during surgery and wonder whether there really was a major problem and I didn't get enough oxygen to my brain for a short period.
I don't think it is hormonal, I think it is a combination of anaesthetic and also a way of your body telling you to rest.
You will find that you gradually get back to normal.

Re: Feeling out of it

Thank you. I hope so. I have to think over the simplest things or won't remember what I'm doing. Walked to my desk this morning to add tooth paste to my grocery list and forgot what I was going to write down by the time I got there! Thankfully we passed the dental stuff at the store and it jogged my memory!
