I had a mini gastric bypass on Monday 16th March. Had a rough recovery in hospital after the biggest of my port wounds bled Tuesday night. My surgeon cleaned the blood that pooled under the skin and replaced my staples. I'm horribly bruised and swollen. I'm still struggling to lie down, get comfy or sleep and ny clips are itchy as hell.

My question is, how normal is it to want to cry your eyes out after? It's not a pain thing. I am sore and uncomfortable but the crying comes on suddenly and is uncontrollable sometimes. It's been every day since i got home Thursday. I get that I've been through a traumatic experience but anyone else find themselves crying like a baby for no reason?

It's not unusual to have a good cry after being finally being through with the surgery. Many had to fight for their WLS or had to jump through countless hoops to get coverage for WLS.

The tears you cry might be tears of relief.

Something to do with Hormone release and Head games

yes - Aj is right - a lot of women become emotional in the weeks after surgery and sometimes it's due to hormone release. Some women have bizarre menstrual cycles after surgery, too, for the same reason. It'll balance out after awhile, if that's what it is.

Sabs, I know this is old but I hear everything you said. I have been so emotional the last few days and I cry at the smallest things.
