Fatigue after septal myectomy

Posted by edkoch @edkoch, Jan 4 10:10am

I’m 52 and had a septal myectomy on 13 Dec (just over three weeks ago). 90mmHg pressure differential prior to surgery. 0 after. I’m finally through most of the major pain (down to one oxy a day). However, the fatigue and brain fog are killing me. I don’t know what to do with myself other than sleep and watch tv. Sleep just makes me feel worse. Despite how tired I feel I’ve started to go on walks to try to get things moving again. I feel like all I can do is wait and hope I feel better. I’m worried that it will take another month or more before I can go back to work. Then I’m worried I won’t be able to get through an 8-10 hour day when I do (I work in an office)

Any advice?
