So it's been about three months since surgery #1 of 3 and the past few weeks I have felt so worn out. I feel more tired now than I did the first month after surgery. Is this normal? I feel like I could sleep at any time and just feel like I don't have much energy.

Pretty normal. I felt dead tired for about 3 months.

It's been almost 3 months since my takedown and I am just now starting to get some more energy. I was tired all the time. I have just started b12, d, and iron since I found out I was deficient in all of that. Have you had those levels tested?
