8 Days Post Op

I had my surgery about 8 days ago. I currently have an infection at the belly button incision site which if it doesn't clear up in 48 hours I'm hospital bound for IV treatment. So far this recovery has been a nightmare. I am getting no support from my emotionally closed off spouse, who tells me constantly to snap out of it and what are you crying about now. I feel empty like I'm losing my mind. I have two beautiful children and am eternally grateful for them, I have wonderful friends who have cooked dinner for my family every single night, a sister who calls and texts me every single day and for that I'm grateful. But at this hour of the night when it's quiet, I cry and cry, like something is missing and I get so sad. I'm sure it's hormones but I feel like I'm going crazy!

Re: 8 Days Post Op

Angel, your emotional state is perfectly normal and something that noone warns you about. It is part of your body's overall response to the massive insult this surgery is to it. It was the thing that I found the most surprising and overwhelming part of the whole experience.
Don't worry about it too much. I found that over the next couple of weeks I gradually returned to my normal self.
My post-op discharge warned that it can last about 4 weeks, but if longer it is best to speak to your doctor.
