I have yet another question~so happy to have found a place I can ask them. My surgery is next week, was deemed "urgent in Dec" but pushed back twice due to insurance working slower than a snails pace! :-) on the days that I work, I am exhausted, I come home and sleep! I will wake because of pain, but usually I will go back to sleep. Typically I am a light sleep. Just don't know if this is normal. My job is pretty demanding. Thanks Shari


  • Hi Shari,

    I can only tell from my experience that I found that I was exhausted when I was recovering and had an idea that my microD didn't work. When it was confirmed, it explained why I was exhausted. I found working remote (from home, lying down) helped. But the 2 weeks before my recent surgery I went back in. I was exhausted...wanted to take a nap mid-day. Stress about wrapping up stuff at work, stress about if the surgery would work, stress about the surgery itself, stress that the medical condition was causing.

    I really can only say from my experience (and my situation wasn't as 'urgent as your's), it could be normal.
  • It is just amazing how tired I am on the 3 days that I work, but, on the other 4 days, it's very different. Thank you both for sharing! Shari
