I'm +16 Days After My Transplant. Anyone Else Get Tired Easily And Want To Sleep?

I'm +16 Days After My Transplant. Anyone Else Get Tired Easily And Want To Sleep?

Stephanie That is very normal and in fact it doesn’t go away very soon. You are recovering from having no immune system to slowly building it back up. We don’t even have the immunities our mother’s gave us at birth. It takes time! Energy coming back probably takes the longest. You will get there! Be patient and listen to your body, rest when you are tired. It means that you are healing, getting better. Love, Marcia 🌸

Oh Yes. I would definitel6 sleep a lot. Some days just getting up to use the bathroom seemed too much. You will find your strength will come back very gradually but it does come back. Be patient and try not to rush it!

Guess I’ve been too hard on myself after reading everyone’s messages,it’s only been 5 months since my transplant and I still get tired,thought I would be as good as new by now. So I push myself to do things,but my backpain is just so painful I have to stop. I got a fractured back last year,because of my cancer in my bones,which has healed but my lower back spondylitis just kills me ,even Just watering my flower garden and cutting a few flowers gets me down. I’m still on chemo,the pill form,Dr said for the rest of my life,so my blood counts r still low. If it wasn’t for my sweet husband’s understanding I don’t know what I would do. I want to give up sometimes, praying and hearing all your stories let’s me know I’m not alone! Thank you all for sharing💓

I am 18 months out from a tandem SCT and I battle fatigue on a daily basis. I do believe this is my new normal. Don't push things just be patient. If you overdo you will pay for it. Listen to your body if it tells you to rest do that. Tomorrow is another day. God bless you and prayers being sent your way
