Greetings to all: May this post find every one in good health and spirit. Thoughts and Prayers to those who are still struggling before possible surgery and those after surgery for quick recovery, and answer to those seeking.
I hate to keep posting the same article or subject! But I need to seek more answers to my situation. I am out of AAA surgery 2 months now, things health wise, are doing well. I am able to move, stand up from bedside, chairs, and just thank full to be alive. Nothing health wise has set me back, for now. I don't expect it, as long as I face it and overcome it.
But I am starting to really get concerned about my sleep! I don't know if its a pattern I am falling in, or part of the after surgery of this kind, or what. I know my last resource would be seek help from doctor. I have a full physical/labs in June, and xray/pics in aug with my heart doc. I have mentioned the situation of mine to primary doctor. I am going to try and work this out, from inputs and suggestion from my post and those out there who have gone through this period of lacking the ability of sleeping, and those who found answers to help one sleep.
I don't understand this, and I am trying to piece the whys its going on. Through what I eat, what I do before I get to bed. Why is my body doing this? I am trying also to stay away from meds that help sleep through scripts from the doctor. I am trying natural sleeping help. So far I have done one, mellatoma, and now going to try Valerian Poppy. I have used Tylenol PM, used liquid Eze-sleep, and capsules of this products. To no avail, take before heading to bed, or as going to bed.
The symptom that is going on is this. Bear with me. When I get tired enough that it feels like I am ready for bed, tired and barely keeping the eyes open and stuff. Hit the bed, then for some reason, my body does not let me sleep. The symptoms of sleep is there, I want to sleep...but I can not, it just wont happen. My body feels like it does not want to shut down for sleep. But my feelings and body have the tired mode in gear. I get up try to walk a bit, I try to go and watch tv, get on the computer, and believe me, the tired mode does show up, cant focus on computer, cant stay awake watching tv....then when I feel tired enough, body wise, and mind. Go to bed, once I lay there, it does the same, cant sleep, body is tired, walking around makes me drowsy, feel like I am drunk and just cant stand up. But return to bed, cant sleep. Cant turn my sleep mode on. Its frustrating, its over powering that I can not sleep at all. And all I can do is wait till my body just shut its self off from exhaustion, and plump shut down mode....
So what I am seeking again, can any one give me feed back on this. Are some of you coming out from this kind of surgery going through this. Has any one told from the heart doctor that this is part from the surgery? And if one goes through this how long have this been going on to you? What have some of you done to help curb this? One thing I am not is a reader while lying there. I thinking of taking walks in late afternoon to help get tired! So bottom line, I am at lost, trying to seek input. If this situation keeps going on, the bottom line is seek help from primary doctor if all fails. So I look forward to any feed back, and help with this situation get settled. Thank you all again. GW
