    No I never felt that way after surgery. You might want to drink some ginger for nausea and not vomiting. Do you know about cannibals for nausea and vomiting. Its better than what they give you pharma meds. Also camomile tea will help. If you are panicking have doctor give you something for anxiety. Just try to relax. It will be a long recovery so just be patient. No fats ok. Hope you feel better.

    Vomiting isn't normal. I think you should let the doctor know about your symptoms.

    hope you are feeling better. magnesium will definitely help calm your anxiety down... fast.

    try a form of magnesium that wont upset your stomach... like magnesium glycinate in pure powder form.

    hope it helps

    I have had severe anxiety since my surgery 10 days ago. I started taking Zoloft again after not needing it for years. I also can't sleep well at night, a few hours at best. And tonight I had night sweats for the first time. The Zoloft has helped but I still feel the adrenaline-anxiety, restlessness. I have small moments where I have an appetite but mostly i don't at all and i have to make myself eat. I've read alot in forums and Facebook groups about similar experiences and I too am discouraged thinking it may be weeks to months to resolve. It's like my body has totally wigged out!
