I had my surgery on April 21st and I feel the same. I'm not as tired as before, but I am getting bored. I like sitting at the table doing computer stuff (like reading the Bonesmart website) but then my leg starts to swell. I was talking to my aunt and uncle on the phone this afternoon and just started zoning out of the conversation because it took so much energy to listen to a long conversation (thankfully my sister was also on the phone call to carry the conversation on our end).Alas, as my hip improves, I am getting bored. But my energy isn't keeping up with the entertainment my brain craves. It's like I want to sleep and do something at the same time. I'm sure this is partly because my sleep is still pretty off. This feels like a whiney complaint but I feel like I'm going to go stir crazy. Anyone have any tips?
Sleep deprivation and low energy is all a part of recovery.
Sleep deprivation is pretty much inevitable - but what causes it?
