Hi PR64....It is very normal...When you go back to your doctor for your 6 weeks exam you should be feeling much better...Thinking back I would say it took a good 6 months before I felt pretty much like myself...Everything has to find a new place and settle down...Take care...


P.S...Take it easy...Don't rush it...
