Still Crying After 10 Months

After about 4 months, I started going through anxiety 'meltdowns', which I had never had.

I found out here that a hyst can change thyroid and adrenal levels.

A simple blood test can determine if one of these is happening.

Does your doctor know you still cry at times? Did you keep your ovaries? If not, can you take hormones of any kind? perhaps wanted children and are still grieving, and some counselling through the hospital might be an idea?

I mean....crying at times IS normal, but I am not sure what you mean by 'odd times'.

Would love to help, and if you can give a bit more information, that would help get some good information for you.

Still crying after 10 months

I do have my ovaries. Odd times means watching TV and there is something related to a person having a baby or listening to the radio and hearing a song. its like i feel fine and then it catches up with me when i try to go to sleep. I am enjoying an event but and not feeling sad, however, when i get to bed i am bawling.

What did your doctor say about this?

Also - I suggest you go to the Aching Hearts section of Hystersisters. There are many sisters there dealing with not having any children, or even more than they already had...

Have a peek down there too and post if you like.

I felt sad at losing my 'choice' in the matter, even though I had never really been crazy about having kids. My late sister had none, and I do grieve the end of our wee branch of the family tree. We were a good family.

I hope you find some comfort.

Dear arace28 I am very sorry that you are having major crying issues ten months post op. As you can see from my signature I had my hyst a few days ahead of you. I really dont think you should be feeling like this whatever the reasons. I suggest that you go to see your doctor and talk about the problems that are still bothering you. You could be experiencing hormonal problems, maybe you need to talk about your grief and loss to somebody. If you are suffering from clinical depression there are therapies out there to help you. I had issues with chronic pain before I had my hyst but I still needed to deal with my loss. My 'depression' came out months after my hyst. I am still dealing with it and have the support of my doctor and family and friends. There are people who can help you. Please pm if you want to. Best wishes Jane.

Arly3 - I will be 4 months post op tomorrow and I woke up with an anxiety attack on christmas morning. Had some real strange dreams and woke up thinking about a lot of past memories. All morning I felt shakey and my heart kept racing. I feel a little better today after talking to a few girlfriends but I still just have these uneasy thoughts running through my head. I still have my ovaries but thought it could be a change in my hormone levels or something. Did this anxiety last long for you?

Still Crying After 10 Months

lizard - I had about a month of anxiety and several meltdowns...what was odd is that I had NEVER had a problem with anxiety, was not getting to bed early, yet was fatigued.

I emailed my doctor (they have an email form on their website for appts and questions) - and when she saw my description, she got me a req for blood work before I saw her.

WELL - I was hyperthyroid for the first time in my life!

I posted in Aching Hearts, wondering if I was just being selfish and lazy - and it was pointed out to me by several sisters that the thyroid can kick up after a hyst, as can the adrenal glands.

SO - I asked my doc for a req to get the cortisol (adrenal) levels checked.

I have wait for quite a while to see a specialist...I had a thyroid scan and another blood test (has to be done same day) Oct 31. The deal is I will be put on Tapazole for a while. That usually settles the thyroid down and it stays there.

Please get the bloodwork - and the FSH (hormone) test while you're at it.

Arace28 - this bloodwork might be a good idea for you too.

This is based on my experience only - check with your doc!

Thank Goodness

I thought I was the only one who was still breaking down for no apparent reason. Really I thought I was going mental. SInce my procedure in April...well I still go through PMS I suppose. First week of the month I can't stand myself. and I do cry easily over things that did not bother me before.

I have children but do regret that I can't have more. But I know the decision was for the best. I spoke to my doctor, he recommended I go to a counselor. I did..she said it was normal that my body was still in some kind of menopause so the hormones fluctuate or something.

I just know I take it one day at a time and am thankful that I am still here to get weepy or moody.

I wish the best for everyone.

I would definatly talk with your doctor. Mine has diagnosed me with Post Tramatic Distress Syndrome (aka: depression). He said depression is normal after a hysterectomy, especially if you had complications as I did. One week post op, I ended up with a PE or blood clot in my right lung. I work in the ER, and since I've been back to work, I've seen some things that have really bothered me. Anyway, he said it really won't ever go away for me, but eventually I will push it to the back of my head. Anyway, I've heard of quite a few women having depression after thier hyst. Hope that helps.
