Tired, achy eyes after surgery for pelvic organ prolapse repair

Since surgery a week ago my eyes have been tired, achy, and a bit dry. Is this from anesthesia, or from my activities, which are primarily reading and using a netbook computer (or both)? I don't remember this from my other surgeries. BTW, my hyster was 4 years ago; this surgery was for pelvic organ prolapse repairs. General anesthesia and an overnight hospital stay.

Re: Tired, achy eyes after surgery for pelvic organ prolapse repair



Anesthesia and various medications can cause issues with the eyes. Additionally, if you are spending more time than usual using a computer, watching TV, etc., then that could also be causing issues with your eyes. Hormonal issues can also cause issues and the stress of a surgery could cause your hormones to be off a bit.

If you have an optometrist, you could give him/her a call, as well as check with your surgeon.

Re: Tired, achy eyes after surgery for pelvic organ prolapse repair

I'm not sure if this is relevant, but I had my Laprosocopic total hyst on the 11th and the anesthesiologist told me before surgery that my eyes may be puffy afterwards from being "upside down". apparently when they did my surgery I was 'traverse' position as the surgeon described it.. maybe this was the same for your surgery too? I hope you feel better soon! : )
