Feeling exhausted .... Doing nothing !!

Posted , 5 users are following.

Currently day 2 after my op , most of today I have been laid in bed ( we live in a bungalow so am still close to the family being on the same floor as everyone else) . I have been getting up for toilet breaks etc , going through for meals and obviously to have a wash etc ... Just feel exhausted and want to flip in bed ... Pain is minimal , been keeping on top of pain killers , antibiotics and lactoluse ( which works a treat as I could have a no straining bowel movement this morning lol) .. Hope this tiredness wears off soon

    It is the effect on the anaesthetic. For me it generally take 4-5 days to get over that itself and it can take longer. Just go with the flow and sleep when you need to.

      Hi Sarah, I am please you are ok chic, the migraine will be from the anasetic that's what they told me,, I over did it with poo stuff it was finding a happy medium, my surgeon told me to get andrex bottom wipes no fragrance and I feel better by using them.

      some swobs but I drew the line when she started with the internal, God I nearly passed out at the thought of it after a A&P ten days ago
