How long after chemo, surgery and rad will your energy return? All labs are normal, NED, finished last tx 3 months ago, but still fatigued?

3-4 months: Individually each procedure requires about 6 wks. post treatment for symptoms to return to normal. As such 6 wks post surgery, most are beginning to feel improvement in symptoms. Post radiation, 6 wks also required and the same for completion of chemo. When all are employed at least 3-4 months needed before one begins to appreciated improvement overall. ...Read more

Is energy therapy useful? Told to heal my knee pain with my mind instead of going to Dr.,to get an order for an X-Ray, & seeing if I need surgery.

Is energy therapy useful? Told to heal my knee pain with my mind instead of going to Dr.,to get an order for an X-Ray, & seeing if I need surgery.

Visit the doctor: Western ("allopathic") medicine is not perfect. However, it is scientifically-based, and generally administered by professionals with good training, experience and ethics. Practitioners of "mind healing" may not adhere to the same rigorous standards, and the advice you quoted sounds irresponsible. I would suggest seeing the doctor. You might then use "mind healing" as an added resource. ...Read more

After two surgeries I have to take B12 shots monthly but still have no energy. Amount of sleep and diet seem unrelated. Can my humira be causing this?

After two surgeries I have to take B12 shots monthly but still have no energy. Amount of sleep and diet seem unrelated. Can my humira be causing this?

Yes it can: Humira can cause "lack of energy" feeling, but not very common. I assume that you had gastric surgeries? Since you food intake is significantly reduced after the surgeries, this can itself cause the lack-of-energy feeling for quite some time until you body has the time to readjust. Also, thyroid dysfunction as well as depression can cause this feeling ..So, onsult your doc.. ...Read more

34 year-old woman continues to suffer gynecologic pains, especially with bodily movement, after da Vinci surgery for fibroids and endometriosis.....?

34 year-old woman continues to suffer gynecologic pains, especially with bodily movement, after da Vinci surgery for fibroids and endometriosis.....?

Ovarian conservation: Unfortunately this is fairly common; my best guess is it's related to recurrent or ongoing endometriosis. There are many (good) reasons for preserving ovaries when having a hysterectomy, but good data show that if ovaries are conserved women are 6 times more likely (62% vs. 10%) to have recurring symptoms, and 8 times more likely to need additional surgery (31% vs. 4%) than those who have them removed. Adhesive disease is certainly another possibility. ...Read more

How long should it take me to get back to work after arthroscopic shoulder surgery?

6-8 weeks: This depends greatly on the procedures performed during the surgery as well as your occupation. Most arthroscopic shoulder surgeries take 6-12 weeks to recover from, but people with desk jobs often can return to work in 2-3 weeks in a sling with activity restrictions. People who work in manual labor jobs with heavy lifting may not be able to return to full duty for 3 months. ...Read more

How long would it take to get back full range of motion after ACL reconstructive surgery?

How long would it take to get back full range of motion after ACL reconstructive surgery?

Can take weeks: Maintaining full knee extension is far more important after acl surgery. Flexion usually advances toward normal over the first 1-3 wks. Full flexion, however, may take more than a month as any residual significant swelling will make absolute full flexion difficult to regain until the swelling completely resolves. Concomitant meniscal repair may purposefully limit flexion to 90 degrees for 6 weeks. ...Read more
