Default sleeping problems after surgery?

Hello there,
I haven't been on in quite a while....I originally posted as"help for 20 mos old" so you can see photos of my daughter there. After much anguish and many, many second opinions we had her forehead hemangioma removed on Dec 1. She is 2 now. She did just wonderfully before and after the surgery and even tried to do a somersault 2 hours after (obviously we stopped her) So she is one month post op now and her scar looks pretty good I guess.....The incision was longer than I thought it would be but it's done and I don't have to worry about it any more.
Just wondered if any you had sleep problems after the surgery.....she was sleeping through the night and now has been waking up in the middle of the this normal after surgery? Any thoughts on how to help her....I'm getting sleep deprived now! I'll try to post a photo soon.

Glad the surgery went well!

I don't know if they're related? Did she stop sleeping through the night right after surgery? Perhaps her "clock" just got off?

We are 2 weeks post op and have not experienced any changes in her sleep. Perhaps the anesthesia has affected your dd differently. Maybe you can contact the anesthesiologist and see if this is a side effect.

Glad your surgery went well and its behind you, congrats!

My daughter was still an infant so I can't really say, but maybe its just a developmental thing?
