Post Op Jitters

We've all heard of pre-op jitters, but post op?

Well, lucky me I got em. About 24 hours after surgery a feeling of nervousness, jitteryness, uneasyness, irritability came over me. This is very unlike me. I thought it was due to hospital confinement, but when I got home it persisted.

So I called my OB and he prescribed Buspirone. Well, by the time the doc's office called the pharmacy and my daughter had a chance to pick up the RX, the symptoms were gone and my nerves were calm.

Anyone else experience this? I would say this was the only downside of my whole experience.

Still at level 1 pain, very relaxed, sleeping like a baby and happy!!

Surgery can cause depression and anxiety, you may have just had residual pre-op jitters though. Glad you're feeling better.

Beware of the 2-3 week post op jitters though, they can make you do things before you're ready and you'll overdo it! Remember you need a lot of rest. Things will wait until you have had time to heal.

I am so glad you are feeling better now.
Yes, things can hit us at unusual times. There are lot's of meds clearing out of your system in addition to the healing and hormone fluctuations. So just take it real easy during your recovery time.
And yes there is something about that 2-3 week recovery time frame that seems to effect a number of us. But that too shall pass.
I too am a '51 woman. Great year to be born.
