so moody!!

i had my surgery on 9/28/10 - i am on an emotional rollercoaster - now mind you i had a uterine removal only so i had been under the impression this would be a moot point with me - not so much - i get really emotional and tear up 2-3 times a day - and now i am like are you kidding me? oh and on top off this i have anxiety in spades as well again i say are you kidding me! Can anyone help me out with ways to relax and get back to "normal" ?

Re: so moody!!

I completely understand. I had my surgery sept 8th. I kept my ovaries so i wasnt expecting the emotional stuff either. I cry so much and for no reason, and thats so unlike me. My dr said id get back to normal, but this is too much. Health wise i already feel better and i have no regrets about having the surgery. I just talked to my drs nurse about this and shes going to talk to my dr snd call me back. Im hoping for a way to fix this. After i get an answer ill post what i was told. Maybe we'll both find some help.

Re: so moody!!

The surgery can put the ovaries to sleep for a few weeks, then wake up with things being back to normal. Hope you feel better soon.

Re: so moody!!

I had a complete hysterectomy on 10/1-it all came out. I had already gone through menopause and did not expect the emotional rollercoaster I am on. I cry for any reason and I think these are called hot flashes I am experiencing . This is my first post and I don't know - but it is alittle comforting, knowing others are feeling the same things.

Re: so moody!!

if worst comes to worst we can console each other and take stock in kleenex!! I hope you are much better. my actual older sister (19yrs older) stated that this is normal and i am to let it all go and get it out. she is a riot, she basically told me to say to [email protected] with it!! and once you do it will be cathardic. i know it sucks right now, but we will get through.

God Bless!! Hang in there.

Re: so moody!!

How long does this moodiness last anyway? Does one have to be on some type of medication? At the moment I am not, nor did the doctor and I even discuss it. It was a surprise to me to feel this way. I am hanging in there as there are the good days and the bad days.. I think this one is a good one

Re: so moody!!

Hi - I also had my surgery on the 28th, and my moods are all over the place. The ovaries sort of go into downtime, as far as I understand it - the decreased blood supply causes them to sleep for a while. Along with all that there are the emotions from the surgery too, and I'm just trying to ride it out. I see my doc for a follow-up next week though, and if I'm still crying at songs on the radio I will be having words with him!! Take care - we're all here if you need us!

Re: so moody!!

Sometimes a good cry can be good for you. I teared up quite easily in the first couple of weeks. In fact on the 12 day of post op I cried for nearly 3 hours just could not stop. Some of that time I was laughing as well as crying so it was interesting. I was in the hospital fighting an infection so I am not sure how much was hormones and how much was stress. But after that big cry I felt much better. The charge nurse on duty that day came in and sat with me for like 45 minutes to make sure I was okay. She told me sometimes we just have to let it all out.
