Lightheaded after TT
If you just had the surgery a few days ago, you may well be dehydrated and need more fluids. The dose of narcotics that frequently in a dehydrated patient can drop the blood pressure on standing. Try drinking a quart of water then standing and see if you still have symptoms. If so, call your doctor or go the the ER
thank you for your question. If you have extreme pain and lightheadedness I recommend calling your surgeon as soon as possible. If you cannot get a hold of your physician I recommend going to the emergency room. I think you need to be evaluated by a physician.
