Has anybody got any ideas on how long the fatigue might last. It kicked in at 3 months post-op and he doesn’t think he’s improving, My husband is trying really hard to eat more and is having a small protein shake once a day in an effort to get more protein in. Fortunately he’s not feeling so nauseous of late but feels really exhausted a lot of the time. For example, he’ll do a bit of washing up, prep a snack, empty dishwasher, then he has a rest for half hour or so, has something to eat, then does an hour or so in the garden, potting up plants, not digging, then he rests again and has another bite to eat. I tend to think this is par for the course but he is not so sure, it makes him feel ‘down’ and I try to encourage him to be positive and believe in himself. When he talks to mates on the phone he is quite positive, but I know he is concerned about how he looks, he has bought new clothes which fit and that helps.
Any ideas and tips will be very much appreciated.
