    I've had this procedure done, and my symptoms started 2 months post OP, so I thought it was interesting.

    I don't think it's accurate to characterize those symptoms as being "CFS symptoms." Chronic fatigue is present in a huge number of diseases, and not particularly relevant to ME/CFS. And of course, we don't get localized rashes or hair loss.

    It is interesting drob31, and certainly worth following up for you. It would be wonderful to hear that you have something curable.
