    What causes dizziness and nausea after a vaginal hysterectomy and pelvic repair?

I had a vaginal hysterectomy and pelvic repair 9 weeks ago. Went through menopause 18 years ago. I still am dizzy and feel nauseous - sometimes so tired I have to nap several times a day. Had blood tests from my primary care doctor - all is normal except alkaline phosphatase, which is quite elevated. Am getting tired of this, but have had no advice from my doctor.

Hello,

As you have undergone surgery a few weeks back so I believe it’s just weakness, you should take a healthy diet and some multivitamins.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Naira Jahangir, OB and GYN Specialist
