Had major surgery on ankle Nov. 9th. I am in a walking cam boot and going to physical therapy twice a week. I work from home. I am baffled that I am so exhausted. Is anyone else dealing with a lot of fatigue?

    I am 2 months post surgery and I feel like I hit a wall every day, I wonder how long anesthesia stays in our system?

    I also experienced fatigue.  I think it was due to how stressful these injuries and the recovery is.

    I had my surgery on Oct. 28th.  I was also was fatigued the first couple of weeks.  It got better for me.  But I am retired and I am sure working makes it difficult....even working from home.

      Yes....I started weight bearing on Dec. 21st.  It was a slow start, but getting better every day.  I walked 2.5 miles yesterday while on vacation.  You?

      What kind of surgery did you have? I am still in the franken boot, but starting physical therapy next week and then on 2 weeks the boot comes off and the brace goes on. I can't wait to drive again 😃

      I had a trimalleolar fracture and ORIF surgery.  I started

      physical  therapy on Dec. 21st and went 6 times.  Once I got the ok to weight bear, the ortho surgeon said I was healed and did not need the boot. The first week after surgery I had a splint on, then 3 weeks in a cast and 3 weeks in the boot.  It is a great feeling to be able to drive again.
