After my surgery, I still feel tiredness.
What is the cause of it, because I do take enough rest.
I would like to know more about what I should be doing to keep going.
I also wish to know what activities I can do because I seems to get tired easily especially while climbing the stairs, I thought after my surgery, everything will be fine, but alas! it's not what I afraid.

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Is this good advice?

I know how you feel. I had my thyroid removed in 2008 and felt great for the first 2 months. Then found I can just about acomplish one thing a day. Like grocery shopping, after that I am exhausted. I find that the best way for me to get sleep is to take 2 ibruprphine pm. When my thyroid was removed it was pretty much destroyed from Hashimoto's Disease. I have several questions that I have not gotten answers to. My dr. is great but does not take being without a thyroid very seriously. I do and wonder since I had an autoimmune disease, will my immune system attack something else?
