Tomorrow will be one week since my TT/Lipo/breast lift. I have taken no rx pain meds today but have been unable to get out of bed. I have slept this entire day in addition to sleeping last night. It has really upset me because I feel like I should be doing better!

Just to add that today is two weeks and I haven't had any more of that extreme fatigue thankfully!

That is excellent news and so glad to hear you are doing better. It is a long healing process so just keep your chin up and hang in there.:)

Hello, well if you are only seven days post OP being tired and worn out is totally normal. What your body needs most at this point is rest and good nutrition. Just take it easy and know it will get better each week. Your body has just gone through a major surgery and it needs time to adjust and heal. I understand how hard this process is so I do feel your pain :) Just take it a day at a time and listen to what your body tells you. My first two weeks post OP I had to take about five naps a day...I was totally exhausted. After I took a shower I always needed a two hour nap. Hang in there and keep your chin up! Better days are ahead. Now if you are 66 days post OP and still feeling this way PLEASE go in and see your doctor.

Hi there realmomof2,

Your headline says your 66 days out, but your post says a week since your Mommy Makeover. I'm a little confused, so I'm just going to answer as though you're 7 days post-op (Please correct me if I'm wrong).

I totally understand your frustration, but try to remember that you've just gone through a huge ordeal and your body needs time to catch up. Healing can be like that: you get a little better, then you get a little worse. Most women need at least two weeks before they start to feel even a little bit like themselves.

Please keep us posted on your healing.
