No: Other issues may be causing fatigue such as mild depression, thryoid problems or lack of estrogen. See your gynecologist for further evaluation.

Some of this may be age related. The older you get the more significant the effects of surgery and anesthesia.

As above, but after surgery you can have low iron stores from bleeding, obviously low hormones, and maybe low vitamin d and b levels

Maybe: One of the main complaints after any surgery is difficulty with energy returning to normal. Surgery is stressful to the body and it takes time for one to get back to "normal" sometimes. However, 4 months is pretty far out from surgery to feel this way so it might be a good idea to see your doctor and have an evaluation and labs checked.

No uterus: If you do not have a uterus then cramping must be caused from something else. Consider seeing a gastroenterologist to evaluate your intestines.

Bacterial Vaginosis: Bacterial Vaginosis occurs when the ph in the vagina becomes less acidic and allows the bacteria in the neighboring rectum to overgrow. This could cause a fishy odor that is difficult to get rid of. You see your doctor for an antibiotics and you could try OTC rePHresh to help keep the ph more acidic. You should see your doctor anyway
