Many possibilities: Many possibilities exist. Pneumonia is one, although as a young adult, it's hard to believe you remain afflicted for so long. Blood clots must also be considered in light if the history if surgery as well as your persistent symptoms. Do you have leg pain? How soon after your surgery did you feel these symptoms? These are all questions to be answered in seeing your primary physician asap.
