Has anyone had a issue with naps in the middle of the day since the surgery? I find that I am sleepy throughout the day and then at night I can't sleep. Today is the first day that I'm going to try to stay up and not take a nap to see if that helps me sleep tonight. I do no that before the surgery I never took naps in the middle of the day because I was working and never felt sleepy either. When I had my first surgery 7 years ago after the surgery I suffered from insomnia really bad and my doctor recommended melatonin to help me sleep it did help but I find it doesn't help now and maybe it's because of the daytime naps. I just want to sleep through the night and feel rested the next day.

I nap every day and can't sleep at night but I don't think it's because the daytime naps keep me from sleeping. I have both anxiety and depression and I take Ambien for sleeping at night. I had it before the WLS too, though, so I don't think it's WLS-related for me.

I was always a bad sleeper. I’d lay awake for hours, my brain just not switching off, then doing the count down to when I’d have to get up. If I got 5hrs it was a good night.

Post surgery, I nana napped for months. I don’t nap now. I sleep pretty well most of the time now getting in 8 hrs on average.

The nana nap can be enough to affect your night time sleeping ... well at least I used to find that. So I think reducing your afternoon naps may help.

Good luck. Not sleeping well is awful.

You had your surgery on 11/18, making you 13 days out right? At that point I napped a lot too. It was just part of my recovery from surgery. That daytime sleepiness went away shortly after that. Hopefully it's just your body needing down-time to heal.
