I had knee surgery five weeks ago to repair a tibial plateau fracture, and I am having nearly identical symptoms. I started doing PT one week after surgery, and I have excellent range of motion, but I am still under a no weight bearing order. I have strived to stay active, but I have no energy and even small tasks are incredibly taxing. I am a very fit, active 23 year old female, and this is becoming worrisome. My sking often feels very overheated, and is hot to the touch, but I have no fever, and I nap around two hours almost everyday. I returned to classes last week, and everything from attending lecture and lab, to studying and doing homework drains me completely. I used to work thirty hours a week and carry a heavier class load with little problem, but now just with classes I find myself feeling impossibly tired everyday. My surgeon surgeon also dismisses my concerns, but I feel like I've aged fifty years in the last five weeks. My incisions have healed, and I have very little pain in my knee, but these syptoms remain.
