feeling emotional, 2 days after hysterectomy

Hello everyone!

I had my total hysterectomy 2 days ago. Doing pretty good but today started feeling really depressed and emotional. It surprises me because he left both my ovaries. Can anyone tell me if this is normal and how long does it last? I expected to be so happy because it is something I needed to do for a long time and I have no regrets at all. But just feel down. I feels like a long road to recovery.

Thank you for your help!

I felt the exact same way. Left my ovaries as well. Was told they can go into 'shock' at forst after the surgery. Plus I feel it is normal to feel a sense of loss or grief. We are quite attached our wombs. I started taken Dong Quai and Black Cohosh and vit. D. It helped so much. Hugs....

feeling emotional, 2 days after hysterectomy

I was pretty emotionally unstable for the first few days after my surgery (kept ovaries too) - I cried for no reason at all the evening of day 2 and emotions were kind of a roller coaster. It stabilized pretty quickly but I still can get stressed pretty easily. Just wait a few days - be patient with your body, it's been through a lot! Hope you feel better soon!
