Is it normal to be tired all the time. I slept almost a full 24 hours yesterday.

Of course it's not normal to be tired all the time.

I am five weeks out and I hit a wall at work around 12-1 pm and just start DRAGGING!

I had issues with tiredness a few years ago. Could barely drag myself out of bed in the morning, and I was tired all of the time. Labs came back fairly normal, though iron levels were a bit low. Despite iron supplements, vitamin D, B12 shots, CoQ10 & R+ alpha-lipoic acid supplements, nothing helped. Finally, my endocrinologist suggested Pyrroloquinoline quinone. I didn't really expect it to work, since nothing had so far, but it made a huge difference for me. You can find some more info on it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyrroloquinoline_quinone. He mentioned that it's fairly new on the supplement scene, and not every medical doctor knows about it, but there are studies now out on its benefits.

Good luck, it sucks being that tired.

Of course not. 

What are your labs and how recent are they? Do you have any season issues normally, like SAD? Are you feeling depressed as well or just tired? 

You are so far out from your surgery I'd not be looking at any RNY component directly, but more at a lifestyle/lifechange contributor.

Oh, if you're just a month out then yeah, it is normal.  we were all thinking you had surgery in 2006 because that's what it says at the top of your posts.
