Diagnosed with CFS. The surgeon said there was an infection. I am on antibiotics for a couple more days. I had it taken out last Friday. And took it esdy sat. Then sun. Had to do all my getting reafy for thework week. I exhausted yesterday. My boss is letting me work less hours now 8 - 3 instead of 7-4. I hope that will help.
Sorry you have so much more work to have done. That's going to cost a fortune.

From what I have gleaned, any infection, cold, etc. can bring on a bout of CFS. Our immune systems are useless or at least severely compromised so any type of "bug" can cause a relapse and whatever recovery time you think is adequate, double it, just my 2 cents worth.

Lynn, as Recovery said it can bring on a relapse of CFS due to our immune issues. I, also, wanted to say that just the stress of waiting to have it done, the actual extraction & the stress of the infection on your body can do it as well. All of this combined puts a lot of strain on our already compromised bodies. I sure hope you go back into remission & stay there. Hugs, Denise

I know this is an older post, but I can tell you that everytime I am on antibiotics, I get EXTREMELY tired.  So it could be the cause of your being more tired.
