Depression in POST-Operation Weight Loss Surgery Q&A Posted April 26, 2018 I just downloaded this app and joined this forum for this very reason. I’m 9 days post op and feeling very depressed. I’m single and live alone. I had friends taking care of me for the first 8 days and now that I’m alone I feel worse. I realize now that I ate out of boredom. I feel like I don’t have food to comfort me. It’s almost like losing a friend. I’m also not having a great deal of success getting my Water and Protein in. I just pray it gets better.Thank you for your post and sharing. You can talk to me anytime I feel I’m doing better with the depression. I’ve gotten back into a routine and plan to go back to work next week. Still have some lows. How are you doing?
