4 Days Post Op And I'm Sooo Tired



Recommended Posts

Hello!

I had my surgery weds, and I came home yesterday. I am so incredibly tired and do not have an appetite. I'm trying to drink my Protein but it's giving me nausea.

My biggest concern is being so tired. I just want to sleep. Had this happened to anyone else? Is this normal? How long did it last for?

After a surgery and general anesthesia it is normal to feel tired or jet lagged for few days. Especially when using pain meds and not eating as normal.

I'm 12days out and I am still weak and tired. That's been my only complaint! I have had zero pain, foods going well, but so tired. Everyone says it will get better and it's definitely better than it was a couple days ago! Hang in there!

I had surgery on Tuesday. I was extremely tired the first two days I came home. Yesterday, I was able to stay up a little longer. I think it's normal. Just make sure someone wakes you up every few hours so you can get your liquids in! Good luck~!!

I also had surgery Tuesday and am still exhausted. I get winded just walking the 20 feet from the bedroom to the bathroom (which is often, since I'm still bloated from all the fluids they pumped into me at the hospital). My heart starts racing too. I've been in substantial pain in the belly and shoulder - doctor said that's normal and from the diaphragm being irritated. I've been crushing two Percocet at a time and putting it my Protein Shake (GNC Total Lean chocolate kills the taste). I feel like I just sleep all day. Glad to hear it gets better.

Same here. Surgery in Tuesday. Fell like I have been hit by a truck today. I can walk about 5 minutes then I am back to zero. Pain in better but it hurts. Water is not a problem. Zero app for anything else. Had the chicken broth in my hand and put it back. I am good with water and slim fast for now. sleeping better everytime I lay down.

I can tell its getting better....
