Had total knee replacements, I am not feeling good, no energy, depressed, no appetite, have lost weight?

Male, 73 years old . Recently had total knee replacements back to back. Knees are fine, but am not feeling good, no energy, depressed, no appetite, have lost weight. When standing, blood pressure falls dramatically. I have passed out several times. Heart dr. Says postulate hypotension and given rx blood pressure med to raise blood pressure.somehow I think he is missing something. I freeze, sick to my stomach, just don’t seem to follow all symptoms of his diagnosis.

During surgery you may have lost some blood causing electrolyte imbalance , i recommend that you test calcium/phosphorus, magnesium , sodium , potassium, zink levels
I am almost sure this this the main cause
Good Luck

In my opinion you can be suffering anaemia due to surgery..
Do you have stomach ache?
A CBC test is essential before all..

these are long term post-operative complications of back to back major surgeries.
start on iron,folic acid with calcium and protein supplements.
drink plenty of fruit juices.
