Why am I so tired nowdays? Every since the surgery, I have been fighting some extreme fatigue. I mean, I could aleep all night, get up get the kids off to school, climb back into bed and sleep all day, get up when they get hme do homework and get supper, then go back to bed and sleep all night. How do I know that? I have done it!
I am trying to get a good night of sleep, but I have had trouble falling asleep since the surgery, something I never had trouble with before, and I am thinking this has to be related to the lack of hrmones, but I don't know for sure. It's on my long list to mention to the docotor at my follow-up appointment the first of November.
I'm exercising and trying to eat healthy, which should make me feel better and have more engery, rght? But even that does not seem to have anything to do with helping with the fatigue.
My husband can't understand how I can be tired all the time, and since I can't understand it or explain it, it's hard to help him understand. I am just so sick of being so tired. I try everyday to fight the feelings. I get up and do my exercise and my work and I just refuse to let myself lay down. And that will work for a few days, then it gets to the point where I am so tired that i can no longer fight it and I have to lay down. The other day I was almost falling asleep standing up trying to do dishes. I just reach a point that I am completely exhaused and I have to nap. I have never been like this before in my life.
I have to believe it has something to do with the surgery and the lack of hormones, but I have not really heard anyone say thay have been this fatigued. I know peopl say they get tired more easily after it, but that isn't as much as I am having, so at least I don't think so. Maybe other people are getting this tired too. I just wish I knew if it was normal and if I can get it to go away with hormones or not.
