    tired all the time

    I am now 4 weeks and 2 days out of surgery. I have been home slightly more than 1 week from rehab. I am tired all of the time. I did not feel this way in rehab but I do now at home. The smallest task and I have to nap. I do not remember feeling this way last year. Is this normal or should I call my surgeon?

    Thanks

    Hi Melissa....

    I think it's completely normal. I don't know why it happens sometimes and not others, but there's probably some inconsequential reason. Just rest when you need to.
