I go to physical therapy for the knee twice a week, and there is also a gym in the basement of my apartment. So that is good. It is the lightheadedness and fatigue that get me down. I think I am a bit better..off for a brief vacation change of scenery. Perhaps that will help.

Hi there, how are you feeling now? Did your dizziness go away? I had ankle surgery 17 days ago, was under general anesthesia for ~3 hrs, had metal plate & screws done for my broken fibula. Surgery went well I am told. Recovering now, age 53, in vgood shape, normal blood pressure, etc, but whenever i am not lying down, I feel dizzy. Getting around on crutches requires concentration to not fall. Its not a terrible dizziness that I am going to fall immediately but more so a constant feeling of swaying & being in motion when I am stationary. Also, I don’t feel extra tired at all and my mental alertness is normal. Hopefully this vertigo type feeling ends soon!
