oh the emotions

I am now three days post op my TVH. I have to say I was unprepared for the hormonal fluctuations I am still going through. I thought keeping my ovaries would allow me to escape this aspect of things, but I was wrong.
Anyone else here just start crying for no reason? I don't even feel upset about anything and suddenly I start crying. How long will it take my hormones to settle back into place? I know every woman is different, but did anyone else have a huge surge after surgery?

Re: oh the emotions

I hate to tell you this, but knowledge helps us deal. I *still* have the hormonal outbursts and Im nearly 6 weeks out. Just this weekend I had a total crying fit about clothes. Silly huh. We were going to see friends and nothing fits me yet, so I just didn't want to go. However, I will say this...I had them ALOT early on, the first couple weeks, but they do ease off. It's just such a big adjustment for us, and along with hormones and surgery pain, we have the whole I'm a woman and I have to be comfy in my own skin issues. You just have to remember that you did this for a good reason, and soon, even though it seems like forever, things will be great. Hang in there sister....your good days are coming.

Re: oh the emotions

I also kept my ovaries and they went into shut-down mode and didn't wake up for about 3 months. I would even cry at greeting cards. My poor hubs didn't know what to do with me. You can always talk with your doctor and see if they can give you something for this until your ovaries kick in again. Alot of us had ovary shut-down after surgery. Be kind to yourself. The majority do wake back up, which is a good thing. Good luck to you and remember to pamper yourself!!!!!

Re: oh the emotions

I was just coming here to post about the same thing!

I've got the crying jags...over silly things or over nothing at all. Over the last two or three days, I've also become crazy angry. All my life, I've been the sweet kind one. I've kicked people out of my house. I've been rude and refused to even open the door to people...just telling them to go away. I've yelled at my DF for so many petty things...and in reality he has been fabulous through all of this. I even packed an over-night bag to go to a hotel because I was going to leave him. My dog stopped me because she didn't want to get in the car and wanted to go back home (what a smart girl).

I told my DF last night that I felt like I was close to the point where I would need to be taken to the psych ward. He comforted me, got my dog to come up to comfort me and gave me some medicine for the pain and to calm me down.

My doc did end up taking the one ovary he could find. I missed my first post-op appointment because my dog got very sick...she's going to have surgery, too. So...I'm going to have to call on Tuesday to get a new appointment and will talk to the doc about HRT.

Re: oh the emotions

I am dealing with this myself. Right now a lot of it relates to not being able to have anymore children. I don't know why I am so sensitive about it...it sucks. I mean I DO but you know what I mean??
