Are you feeling tired all the time?



Recommended Posts

I noticed that even though I started pureed today and all is well, I am super tired every time I walk around. Is this normal? When did you see it start to go away?

Yes, it’s pretty normal. Your healing & recovering from a pretty major surgery & feeling tired is yiur body telling you to rest to allow it to heal. Plus you’ve made considerable changes to your diet which takes a bit of getting used to as well. If you feel tired, rest. Don’t push yourself to do more. It does get better though you may still experience periods of tiredness at times. Try an electrolyte drink (I used hydralyte) to give you a little boost of energy on days when you have a few chores to do. Take some with you when you’re out or stop at a cafe and rest over a cup of tea. I did this often.

I think it took about eight weeks for it to completely lift, but it got a little better every week until it was completely gone (in other words, you won't feel this tired for the whole eight weeks (or however long it takes for you)). It'll gradually get better.

I wasn't tired the first couple of weeks, but the last week I have been exhausted.

Probably the lack of calories catching up to you.

Take care.

Yeah, I am sure it is. It doesn't help that suddenly EVERYTHING taste bad to me, so eating has been very unenjoyable.

I am losing weight pretty quick since surgery. Today is day 10 and I am down 17 lbs. That may be a lot of this. I started some foods yesterday so hopefully that will help. Going to go for an IV infusion tomorrow.

Hi everyone, my husband had GSV surgery 2 days ago - is it normal that he is sleeping so much? He gets up and walks a bit,, has some Water and then needs to go lie down again. Constantly feels nauseous… is on 2 meds for nausea. I am a bit nervous for myself since I am scheduled for GSV surgery in October
