In brief: Healing

It is common to have fatigue after surgery; a great deal of your energy is being directed towards the healing process.
This usually begins to improve 2-3 weeks after major surgery. As dr. Cunnar says, anemia should be ruled out to be safe.

In brief: Anemia or normal

Depending on how long ago you had your surgery, you may just be experiencing normal post-operative recovery fatigue.
If the fatigue is severe, or if you are having any pain out of the ordinary, see your physician. Sometimes, anemia can present after a major surgery like a hysterectomy. Your physician can diagnose this with an exam and a simple blood test.
