Hello all,
I am just a little over 2 weeks post op.
Recently I have been really having some leg fatigue
And they seem to fall asleep easily. Is this just my
Body healing from surgery? Thanks for any help

Have you been up and semi-active? Sitting/laying for long periods of time can cause some tingling/numbness in your legs. I don't think this is related to your healing process.

Yea, I am back at work, but I have an office job. It's better today. My surgeons office told me to get a good multi vitiman and drink Gatorade to help with the nutrients and electrolytes I am missing. Today seems a little better, but still there some. Thank you for responding. This healing process and getting over that I had a surgery and my insides are in a different place than God intended is mentally taxing.

That very well could be the case. If you're not hydrating properly and getting enough nutrients from your (still careful) diet, you will definitely feel the downstream effects of that in your muscles. And since your legs naturally are starved for circulation while you sit behind a desk all day (I had the same problem when I went back to work...but I stayed out for 4 weeks). Bananas are loaded with potassium and will definitely help with any muscle issues...and they go down fairly easy :)
