I am also wiped out after wle and snb on 28th but I felt fine the day after. Its only now that I'm feeling the effects of the GA which my husband pointed out. Usually walking the dog doesn't leave me languishing on the sofa like a Victorian maiden. There s also the stress of waiting for the path lab test which is constantly at the back of my mind.
When will all this stress end ? Probably never.
ive had 4 weeks since diagnosis off work and wont be going back until after treatment finished,i am a nurse and definatley nurses make the worse patients,its very hard being on the other side,i felt i wouldnt have been safe careing for others when my heads not fully there, i am going to rest more its very hard when your usually the one that makes everything tick over , but now its time for me to take the back seat ,
ive decided to go for an afternoon nap tomorrow ,i am getting up early 6am a habit i have ,so its a long day so now im going to try to unwind and relax a little,and rest
Aww, mad4cavs, the sheer stress can floor a person, much harder than a knife 😞
I almost went psychotic while waiting for the biopsies results, and now I am scared of the post-op anxiety. The only thought that would have consoled me in such state is that there's no imminent danger, the house is not on fire, your world isn't about to fall on your head. Here and now, you can nest yourself in a little cocoon. Take a deep breath. Relax. Have a long sleep. Tomorrow will certainly be better because your body will have recuperated a bit and there will be less space for the anxiety.
i was on co codamol 30 /500 that doesnt usually affect me ,but as i say i now feel exhausted since operation,i am now taking paracetamol if needed ,theres not much pain ,but i do think it must be the op combined with the stress of waiting for treatment to begin ,the waiting is the worse i think
Wow, mad4cavs, sounds awful. Are you in much pain? Or just very tired? It's still an operation, albeit minor, I wouldn't expect to be galloping around from the get go. I am due for the same soon and I plan to slumber for one week at least. Which pain relief are you using, if any?
i am absolutley shattered had WLE snb on thursday gone and am now totally washed out,i am usually on the go from morning to night i can now hardly function ,i make myself get up and go for short wlks how long does this last ,its getting to me,ive stopped taking analgesia it was making me constipated,only in discomfort that i can put up with now, please tell me it passes ,i thought it might be the effects of the GA or the radioactive dye to find the sentinal node.
