Hi my favorite readers! While recuperating from our total knee replacement surgery, tiredness is a common occurrence. That even happens during the entire first year.
But…are you aware of getting tired easily years after your tkr? Sometimes I am so exhausted, I can hardly function. It happens most noticeable after exercising, or swimming. All I want to do is come home, take a shower, eat and veg out on the sofa.
Does this happen to you, too? I had no idea that tiredness would still be a ‘symptom’ 4.5 years post-tkr. Activities that do not even make others flinch, can cause me to totally pucker out. And…I’m not a wuss.
FYI: I do find that taking an iron supplement helps bring my energy level back up.
Find interesting? Kindly share…
