Feelings of sadness after surgical procedures/ Fullerton In Home Care for Post Surgery

Experiencing anxiety before an operation is often not surprising to patients, but the feelings are not as easily explained after the procedure has been completed. Post-operative depression can be especially bewildering if it comes as a surprise to the patient because it has not been discussed between the doctor and patient. 

 Symptoms of post-operative depression vary with each person, but common ones include changes in appetite and energy levels, shifts in mood such as apathy or irritability, fatigue, and feelings of hopelessness and despair. The physical symptoms might also be credited to the after-effects of the surgery, which can make the diagnosis of post-surgical depression difficult and confusing. 

 Defined by the Mayo Clinic as a “medical illness that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest,” depression is already a difficult topic for people to discuss, and many are reluctant to admit to feeling the way they do, thinking they have no reason to be depressed or are just going through a rough time at the moment.
