Post op tiredness: hello, most people bounce back after 6 weeks but have your doc do a fingerprick Hemaglobin or get a blood count to exclude ANEMIA. If not then check TSH to see that thyroid is normal and check electrolyes, sodium and potasssium. Take a vitamin suppplement and Iron and get some exercise. It will get better..
