Depression??



Recommended Posts

I keep hearing about depression post surgery. Are we talking clinical depression or the blues for a couple weeks? I have chronic fatigue/anxiety but don't typically suffer from depression. I'm on an ssri . I'm very concerned about this. It's going to be hard on my family without depression. I'm scared to get depressed.

I too was nervous about depression but they kept me on my meds for anxiety/ depression I did feel a bit sad and freaked out like what did I just do and the missing food but overall I have been pretty level and thankful for this journey!

It's can be hormonal. There are a lot of fat soluble hormones released as the weight comes off. If you're prone to PMS it's like that. Then add in the loss of food as a coping mechanism which many of us use, throw in some pain and fatigue from surgery and a low calorie diet, a little buyers remorse... it's more situational usually than clinical depression.

I was on 75mg of Zoloft before my sleeve. Two days after my sleeve I began to feel apathetic and just not ok. It felt like no matter how funny something was I couldn't laugh or feel the happy feeling. I went to my normal gp for others reasons and I mentioned this to her .. she then decided to reduce my meds cause it felt like I was in a fog or something. She really had no clue what to do...I had never felt so strange.
Seeing my surgeon and explaining this to him he wasn't sure either. My dr shouldn't of reduced my meds and he said don't worry it will get better. Nearly 10 months post op I feel no different! In fact I have taken myself of the meds and feel no different as to when i was on them. It's extremely annoying and sad that I have to force my happiness and laughter.
This has only happened since just after my surgery. With no explanation as to what the hell is going on.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
