Hi everyone, Many know I had surgery last week. The surgery was three hours long so I was under anesthesia for three hours. I had three nerve blocks, versid and and I am on Percocet and tramadol. I came home after being in the hospital for three days. I have a lot of reason to feel depressed. But, I feel there is depression going on that could be caused from the anesthesia, or the medicines I'm on. The depression, I feel, is out of hand. I have a lot to be grateful for. Let me rephrase..there are things to be grateful for, but a lot went wrong. Too much. I have to be in touch with the hospital for wrong doings. I can't seem to get a grip on the depression. I was told today that I might not be able to drive for six weeks. Also, I've had no help from family. But I have had a lot of help from people that I least expected from. I can't seem to feel the happiness I should for that. So, like I said the surgery was more extensive and I have to keep taking Percocet. Strangely, for whatever reason I'm able to tolerate the narcotics. I'm also on Antibiotics. I am usually allergic to all narcotics so I don't know why I have no problem with them. I feel that my body is protecting me because i'm in a great deal of pain and so my body is saying...."let her be okay on this right now." A major positive. Normally, I itch from head to toe. I know many here know a lot about anesthesia and those of us with chronic fatigue syndrome; meaning many with ME or CFS know what it can do to us more so than "normals." Is it possible that with all the anesthesia and the medications that it has affected my neurotransmitters? I wish I could take antidepressants because I feel so depressed. I'm trying to drink green tea or dandelion tea hoping that I can get rid of whatever it is I'm holding onto via my liver, or kidneys. Maybe the depression is an allergy to the percocet, but its manifesting in this way. I need a brain detox or reset.
