Depression 2 Months Out



Recommended Posts

So I'm two months post op and over the last 5 weeks my energy level has dropped I have no desire to do anything. I'm sleeping a lot and just hang in front of TV for most of the day. No weird thoughts or anything just feel blah and unmotivated.

Red flag! You have put too much of yourself into this process. Good you recognize it, but, you have to act on this. Three legged stool... Physical, emotional, and psychological needs all have to be factored in and taken care of... Call the office in the morning! Good luck.

Also check your thyroid. It is not part of regular bloodwork so you have to ask. For the first time in my life I have a thyroid problem after bypass and b12 had to be upped.

Hope you feel better soon!

Call your surgeon immediately!

It could be factored to several things but you want to take care of this right away.

This is not normal at all.

Good luck and take care of yourself.

Contacted my doctor today who performed my gastric bypass, he is sending me to a Psychiatrist that i had seen before surgery for the pre surgical stuff, so maybe he can help with what ever is going on because i can find no reason in myself for me to be depressed.

so i hope to go next week and i have support group next Thursday so maybe ill bring it up and see who else has gone threw this i have met 1 lady who did but haven't had the chance to sit and talk with her .

Brian, I looked also and could not find it... I did not make it up, I recall a silhouette of a person with his head in hands... Anyhow this is not the exact link but the date if publish makes me think there is a connection. I am glad you are going to see Dr. The article I saw was more related to post op depression setting in.. I will look again later!
