Tiredness after a hysterectomy

Posted , 4 users are following.

I had my hysterectomy 11 weeks ago now and I'm just so tired! When do I expect that to go? I'm back at work full time and I've lifted a few things which has left me hurting! How slowly should I take it?

      Thank you for getting back to me! You poor thing, after hearing that I will slow down. I just feel so guilty when I have to ask for help, and I don't have the patience to wait but I will now. I don't want any more operations! Thank you again and good luck with your next operations

    Hi Victoria , I had a TAH in June I work as a Auxiliary on a ward I've only just gone back to work. my tiredness has gone in the day but I do go to bed early. I've done 3 6hr shifts so far then going back onto night shifts next week sad I think the best advice is to listen to your body i still get back ache, aches & pains in my legs when I've been on them for a long time. Take care xx

      Thank you for getting back to me! I know what you mean about not being tired during the day, but going to bed early and I was thinking 7:30pm every night is far too early! But hearing you saying that, makes me feel better. Thank you again 😃😃

    Hi Victoria

    i belong to anther hysterectomy support group as well asnthis one. Lots of advice and help on there too.

    if you need more time go back to your gp,

    some people talk about doing 'phased returns' building up to normal hours.  It takes 6 months to get to 80% and another 6 to get to 100. Take it easy on yourself.  

    I am currently coming up to 5 weeks post op LÁVH BSO.

    best wishes to you
