I am 13 days out from surgery. Generally everything is going well except I just can't seem to get my stamina back. A few minutes ago I 

was rearranging some purses at the top of my closet...maybe 5 minutes . I had to sit down after to rest. Has anyone else experienced this? What's up?

I'm 4 weeks out today.  For me, it seems like anything where I am raising my arms above my head is the most draining.  Showers are the worst.  I can do all kinds of activity without any problem but getting through a shower is rough.  I have had to sit a couple of times on some days before I finished. 

You are still very early out of surgery.  Give it a little time.  :-)

I am three months post and my energy levels are just now returning to normal. Your body is trying to heal itself and on very little calories. Be patient. Mine came back little by little each week. Good luck!

         At two weeks out , I was pooped all the time. I tried to do housework and go walking, but , I had a hard time with those activities. After about 6 weeks I started noticing that my energy levels were returning to normal, and about the three month mark is when I felt as though I had not only returned to normal, but I was bursting with energy.:)   I've had some struggles on and off with Orthostatic Hypotension since then, and that makes me feel tired at times, but now, at 5.5 months out, I feel like super woman.

Thanks to everyone that replied. It is encouraging to know this is a normal part of the process.

I  am 4 weeks out... and before this surgery I worked 14 hr shifts at work ... no for the past 3 weeks and for the next 4 weeks I can only work 8 HR shifts 5 times a weeks ..And let me tell you when I get home I'm beat... I couldn't even imagine working 14 hrs right now I know it would be impossible. .. good thing  is its a salary job so it's kind of like a mini vacation... :-) it will get better... bit by bit... every day it's a little easier.... it's so worth it!!!
