I had surgery in October for lung cancer I am 64 yrs old
My upper left lobe was removed by key hole surgery & I had a good post op recovery
I had the best news ever that my cancer was very early found & that I require no further treatment except being monitored for five years
I have everything to be extremely thankful for & I am However I am so tired & feel that I have no “get up & go” at all I just want to sleep for hours upon end (when I eventually fall asleep)
Everyone tells me How Fabulous I look & how well I appear but inside my mood is low (on tablets from Dr) for this & yet I feel drained inside & lethargic & really angry at myself when I have been so fortunate
I would just like to ask is this normal or is it just me needing a kick up my ass ????
I feel so guilty moaning as everyone on this website is so very brave with what they have gone through. Where I’ve had it easy & feel ashamed to feel like this. I hope to return to work 1st week in April on phased return & hope that will help x. I’m not looking for sympathy just someone to say yup I felt like that too.
My Dr says I’m rushing things too quickly as I’ve had massive major surgery but I look so well I’m at a loss. Thank you to anyone who can answer this for me xxx
