Weepy ,Moody,Scary Mess HELP!!

Hi Ladies,
I am only 8 weeks post from a Da Vinci Hysterectomy
Lost uterus and cervix kept ovaries and tubes.
Physically I feel like nothing ever happened some of my energy returned and I think the anemia is possibly getting better but the emotional side of this is so messy.
I am normaly not a weeper but, I am totally upset over this and many things. Tears at the least provacation and or anger .irratability and depression I am never far from being that scary woman everyone should avoid .
I try hard to battle against these things. I have to add in a few details I am 15 months into unemployement, I have been on meds for depression for a few years and i am an insomniac as well( on meds for this too but the effects are dimminshed after Hyst)
I have a few challenges as I mentioned above and I am willing to give it my best fight for as long as it takes but , these new hormonal challenges have really knocked me on my tail and made me so very sad and frustrated . To fight I need to be strong and to be strong I have to have some type of normal center to work from and right now I have
NOTHING. I have an appointment on 02/23 to start the HRT
disscussion and to see what path to choose .
Ladies do any of you have any insight or advise ?
I sure could use anything at all
I thank you in advance and hope you all are doing well
( And i hope to be better too some day soon)
Best wishes Patty

Re: Weepy ,Moody,Scary Mess HELP!!

I am 10 days out. Uterus and ovaries gone. Not feeling like myself yet either. Have had moments of pure sadness that come on without warning. Going through a divorce too so lots of things seem to be changed, different and gone!
I don't have super advice for you, just support that I think you know how you feel. I don't have the energy back yet to be physically active - supposed to wait for doctor's ok to return to my life! Normally physical activity, losing myself in work or giving myself lots of tasks have kept me even tempered when hormone issues took hold - hoping that I will be able to get back to my life soon. I would like to avoid HRT but will just have to see how things go. Have had one terrible migraine that sent me back to the hospital and had another minor one yesterday. They might be related too YUK
Good luck. Hang in there. Allow yourself time to heal - it is so easy to say - I know!

Re: Weepy ,Moody,Scary Mess HELP!!

I'm sorry to hear that you're having such a hard time. I don't have any real advice either, but can only tell you that at 4 months post-op (today, actually), I'm much less weepy than I was at 8 weeks, but I still have moments of completely losing it. Small things can still upset me very easily, but it does get a little bit better as time passes.

8 weeks is still quite early in your recovery, although I know it feels like it's been a long time. Your body chemistry is still all over the place, and it takes time to settle down. I hope your Dr. has some ideas to help you, and try to remember that it does get better, it just takes time. This is a HUGE surgery to recover from & for most women, it takes 6 months to 1 year for your body to actually physically heal.

Be kind to yourself & take care.

Re: Weepy ,Moody,Scary Mess HELP!!

i went on antidepressants at about that time post op, everytime my hubby would call home i would be sobbing, it has really helped me get over the hump, plus it controls my hot flashes, night sweats and some of my IC pain
