General health post spinal surgery

Hi, I am 27 years old and 5 years ago I had a tumour on the inside of my spinal cord (a neurofibroma) - it wasnt caught very early so the ofirst op I had my spinal cord was serverely swollen and after 9 hours of surgery my doc had to close and removed the rest separately about 9 months later.  

Initially I was paralysed, but have now regained motion in my legs and am up walking  - though my legs are still pretty weak and I cannot walk long distances or run!

My main issues is that I get ill with fatigue, upset stomachs, exhaustion regularly and i am not sure if that is simply the result of my spinal cord injury or if it is related to something else?

I am simply not sure what is 'normal' post spinal cord surgery?

Thanks for all and any advice.
