Re: Extreme fatigue post surgery - help?
Thank you everyone. Today was a wonderful because a genetic liver test showed that my body did not produce one of the chemicals needed to break down the percocet (acetominophen) to a non-toxic form. So basically I was slowly poisoning myself with acetominophen. I was given N-Acetyl-cysteine today, all day, and now I feel great and almost back to my old self. I was getting very concerned and so was my doctor. is was sent for all the regular blood work (normal results), a lung CT for embolism (neg) and an ultrasound for deep vein thrombosis (neg). We then thought it was a drug reaction and we had to find out what and where. I am so pleased.
About the surgery, my foot looks great and the swelling is very minimal, and the bruising is almost gone. At 15 days out I am so glad I did this.
