Sleep! How are you doing?
I am now 4.5 weeks past TKR. In the beginning,
I had the insomnia everyone talked about. Until recently, I continued to use an alarm and wake myself up to keep my medication dosage even so I wouldn’t get behind on the pain. But the last two weeks- wow- all I want to do is sleep! I nap for an hour after breakfast, fall asleep again after lunch, doze with the TV in the evening and then go to bed at 10! According to my Fitbit, I’ve clocked 11.5 hours of sleep since yesterday! Friends warned me that they felt super tired so I wanted to ask this group— are you tired? Way more than normal? How long does this last?? I feel like a slug- but a very happy one! It’s cold outside and I’m curled up inside!!
