Two weeks post-op basket case?????

My two week hysterversary (abdominal uterus and one ovary) is Monday. With one ovary left, I figured my hormones would be a bit better balanced?? I'm a basket minute I'm fine. I want to turn up the music and dance......the next, I just want to crawl under the covers, cry and make everyone leave me the &*%$ ALONE.
Am I just missing the freedom of being able to drive, go and do as normal? Or am I seriously off balance? Post traumatic surgery symptoms~ or do I need a physicians help?

You're not going crazy!

Sweetie -

Your body has been thru so much. Don't be too hard on yourself. You are not cracking -up. I'm 3 1/2 weeks post-op. Last week I was the same way. I could cry over anything. It's a little better this week. My dr said we may need to up the dosage of my patch (I had both ovaries removed). If you are still feeling "off-balance", give your dr a call. You may need a little extra estrogen to get you over the hump.

Keep the faith. I hope you feel like your wonderful self very soon!

I agree you might need some type of HRT. Call your Dr with your concerns. Best of luck!

Two weeks post-op basket case?????

I was like that my first 4 weeks after surgery. For me, I chalked it up to frustration. I can't walk, drive, do anything except make coffee and go to the bathroom! I was not used to that! I did talk to my dr about it, she has me tracking my moods until my next appointment-in October! But, I am good now, no crying fits or wanting to punch things! Seems most women have gone through something similar to this. Hang in there and talk to your dr about it at your next appointment if it is not resolved. (I, too have one ovary).

At two weeks I was at my worst emotionally and I have both ovaries. My dr. put me on some hormones temporarily and I think they are already making a difference. I suggest you talk to your doc. Your ovary may be in shock and may not be working just yet. Don't suffer. Please talk to your doctor.

You're not going crazy - I am four weeks post op and at two weeks, I seriously thought I was losing my mind - happy, then crying... Each day has gotten better and now I am feeling like I have a little more control over the crying jags - sometimes, I still feel a need to be left alone to process whatever this is. I think Denise is right, though - ask your doctor and remember - there IS light at the end of the tunnel. Be patient with yourself!

Two weeks post-op basket case?????

Two weeks is when I lost it, although it was just for a day thank God!! I was weepy and frustrated. My mother actually said, "well you were the one that chose to do this!" and my friend was like, "you should be glad that you're ok and cancer free!". I wanted nothing to do with it!! I wanted to feel bad for myself. I felt almost hysterical until my wonderful sig. other called and let me get everything out and validated my feelings and then I was done with it. I lost both ovaries and have to say that I have really only lost it a couple times. Very blessed!! Hang in there!! It really does get easier. Just keep reminding yourself that the better times are coming, cause they really are!! I'm still sore sometimes and have some spotting (have to wear a pad at all times still) but I can feel the difference already.
Many hugs!!

Two weeks post-op basket case?????

It was only for a day for me, thank goodness!! After everyone was asleep that night I got in my car, cranked up the music, opened the sun roof and just drove around in the country for an hour. It seems I was the Jeanie in the bottle.......I just had to get out.
I'm feeling much better now, and ever since that night I make it a point to get out once a day. I think I was just feeling caged.........

Two weeks post-op basket case?????

I kept both of my ovaries, but I have been swinging faster than a monkey in the jungle. One day I'm crying about the bunnies in the back yard. The next day I feel like I can't DO anything right. The next I'm mad as heck at EVERYONE, then I feel like Wonder Woman and can do anything, then I'm crying again because I did too much and I am afraid I damaged something. I've been an emotional mess. My doc did say it is normal and it might take a while to work itself out and get my ovaries going again. All I can say is hang in there!!!

At least no one here thinks we're crazy!!!

Two weeks post-op basket case?????

I have to confess I have felt lots like this too but I am generally a bit of a nutcase even without surgery so it occurred to me that given I will cry at a Kleenex ad from time to time and spend a lot of my normal life controlling my tone and emotions so that others can be supported in their lives, (don't lots of us women do this as par for the course?) not too surprising that when I am physically a train wreck and unable to control it all at the moment that I also do the monkey in the jungle swing in these circumstances. It is indeed horrible and unpredictable but at least we are not boring to those around us eh? Hang in there all.
