  • That will probably be the effects of the anaesthetic in your body still. I am sure it will wear off but I think you need to rest and not do too much so soon.
    Hope you feel better soon

  • If you only had your surgery last Monday I am not suprised. It takes a lot ut of us having surgery not matter if it is a microdiscectomy or a fusion.
    So just do as your physio tells you and rest as much as you can. Remember not to sit for too long and eat nutricous foods- even if you have to order in or get someone else to cook.

  • It took 2 weeks after my surgery for me to not feel so tired-the affects of the anesthesia. If you are taking pain meds that may also be the cause-I never took ANY pain meds (except Tylenol) because they make me sick.
  • Thank you everyone for your advice =D>

    Not feeling tired now cut down on the meds by half . Still keeping active but not getting better . Pain in leg and bum still . Having MRI tomorow and seeing the surgeon to see what is wrong or not . Thank you :( hope i haven't reherniated again. :< still at least I will know. zolenniaq
  • it takes time. i had surgery six weeks ago and was exhausted for the first few weeks; walking was an effort. I found as time went by I got more stamina...then when I started PT I am very tired again. I guess the body needs to adjust. Try not to over due!
    :)))
  • I was once told by an anesthesiologist that you need a month of recovery for each hour you were under anesthesia - egads!! Pre-op that seemed like such a LONG time to me.

    Now, well, I'm rethinking that advice and starting to take it to heart. It's a bit scary for me - that means I'm not even 2 months into a 7 month recovery period.
