Depressed after hysterectomy.

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi Ladies please can someone help me.I had a hysterectomy on the 12th Sep because of large cyst on left ovarie.I had to have a CT scan because the cyst was boaderline.Anyway everything was fine big relief but they have said i have to have a ultra scan now on my liver just for compication.I feel so depressed.I went to the doctors last Tuesday and she said yes it because of my hormones.She percribed me antidepression tablets until i have my ultra scan then i can have HRT.I just feel so low and i have to keep visiting all my friends because i cant stay in.I have never felt like this and i keep crying.

    I feel you julie, things can get pretty depressing but it will all pass.Just try not to think about it and instead think and plan how you are going to spent you free time in fully meaning no more periods nor pain so the whole calendar month is yours .I had spesis in February this year almost died, I came out of hospital after four weeks and by first week of june I was diagnosed with big fibroid inside the uterus and was prescribed with esmya for three month to reduce the size of fibroid.I went back in september and the doctor suggested TAH because esmya didn't work at all.I was depressed that day thinking that i will never have children of my own but the next day I woke up and told myself that everthing happen for a reason and I will be fine. After the surgery in october , i feel like I was not sick before no pain anymore. Just think about the current situation and follow the doctors instructions and the rest will take care of themselves.There's nothing impossible, you will feel better and get used to HRT before you notice.Someone adviced me to use evening primrose from boots and i notice l feel like a new person everyday in that surgery was long ago.I will add you into my prayers for God to give you strengh and be able to enjoy x-mas, stay blessed.

      That's true bev, my friend suffered the same high bp just a week after taking them. He stopped immediately and resume to therapy twice a week, they react differently on each individual.
