Is tiredness common post peritonitis?

I had a ruptured appendix and peritonitis two months ago. I have never gotten over feeling so tired from the surgery. Do you think it is related? I ended up with a peritoneal abscess and then C Diff. I can t do anything for long periods of time without wanting to lie down. I am used to being very active.

Hi.
Thanks for your query.
History about perforated appendix and peritonitis 2 months noted.
I do not think, it should be related to your tiredness after such a long time.
It looks that you have not taken enough care after the surgery 2 months before.
I would advise to undergo tests as follows:
Blood tests for anemia, infection - WBC , ultrasonography to see any remnant problem in the abdomen.
I find this answer helpful
