Hysterectomy 8 days ago, trouble sleeping, feel jittery. Took ibuprofen, stool softening meds. Why jittery ?

I had a 4-hour hysterectomy 8 days ago and I am really having trouble sleeping. I feel jittery all the time and sleep in 2-hour increments. I am tired, but cannot sleep. I am only taking Ibuprofen for the pain, and am now off the nausea & stool softening meds. I am drinking lots of water. My mental clarity is not 100% either. Would you please let me know if one day the jitters will go, or if I should contact my doctor. Thank you.

If there was no other significant illness before surgery / no complication at or after surgery - nothing will be in the way of your gaining normalcy as before. Apparently, the only medicine you are taking is ibuprofen and it has no influence on sleep.
Physical rehabilitation is the basis of post-operative recovery / including mental rehabilitation. Once you are back to your usual routine, everything is likely settle down. If you do not settle down in another week, see your doctor - more to make sure there are no new problems.
Good luck
