bad dreams anyone?

I've been having weird dreams too since i came home from the hospital. A few have been scary dreams and some just plain stupid. Last night I dreamed I took two lawnmower tires somewhere and lost them and I came back to get them and they wanted to charge me $97 to get my own tires back. And the lady in an insurance office was trying to explain to me how they came up with the $97 for my own tires. Then I couldn't find my children.
I would imagine the dreams are some side effect of the medications I've been taking but I'm barely taking anything now.

I had horribly weird pshycotic dreams after surgery. I know my DH woke me up one morning to say goodbye before he went to work. I looked at him and said " I promise I will never stab you in the leg!" He just laughed and said "that is good". They were all very vivid and real for the moment. Almost too real and very scarry.

Do y'all suppose some of the dreams are for us to get a good laugh at? While recovering?

LOL wouldn't that be nice. I think it has to do with the anesthesia and the trauma to our bodies. Probably has some to do with pre op stress and hormones too. Crazy, Crazy!

The first week after surgery I had horrible insomnia and repetitive bad dreams which sometimes rated as true nightmares. I'd get trapped inside them, and would wake up feeling horrible. I posted about it, and a few sisters chimed in with support.

They told me this was likely caused by how long it takes our bodies to completely detox from our anaesthesia -- in addition with the powerful meds, especially morphine which I started on, as most of you, I'm sure, did also.

The GOOD news is that the bad dreams stopped after about 2 or 3 weeks and my sleep is mostly back to normal.

Good luck to all of you in sleeping and feeling better when awake!

I'm four weeks out and still having them. I haven't been on any meds for awhile now. Maybe it's just hormones, who knows. I have always had weird dreams but nothing like this.

I was thinking after I read the topic about people having nightmares I was thinking to myself that I don't get nightmares. Oh, then I had one yesterday. I was driving with a van full of people and all of a sudden there was a loud explosion behind us and a plane had crashed into the mountain. So I guess this means I get to join your club.

I have noticed more nightmares and such since this sugery. Far more than before... Although This is my second time on anti depressents. I wonder how many else are on them? That are experiencing this. The first time I had to take them when I was alot younger....The dreams were intense then too.. I think the meds are directly related. Especially antidepressents.
Anyone else have this theory?
I had my surgery in September of 07 and I am still experiencing insomnia aswell... But when I do dream they are so vivid and realistic.. I wake up petrified.
Love and hugs to all

bad dreams anyone?

I am still having strange dreams, but luckily they aren't terrifying lately. My latest dream was:

I was riding a bus, kind of like the one in the Harry Potter movie. I see none other than Truman running along the side of the road chasing sticks. No idea who was throwing them, but he was chasing them. When I get off at my stop, I was in front of the house where I grew up in NJ (I haven't been to that house in about 21 years). I had to scale a hill to get into the house. But when I scaled the hill and got to the top, there was a fence. I reached up to the top of the fence, grabbed a hold of some thick weeds and boosted myself up so I could hop the fence. I wound up in the pool in full firefighter gear. Then I took off my firefighter gear, while still standing in the pool. I was then nekkid. So was my mom, who was in the pool with me and weeding the edge of the pool. Not the grass on the side of the pool, but pulling weeds out of the edge of the pool. My middle brother, Chris was there on the patio but he wasn't nekkid. He wanted to ride his motorcycle to Orange Park at night. I didn't think it was safe so my mom told him no. He got mad at me so he hit me, on the nekkid boobs, with 2 empty corona beer bottles. Then I woke up...
