Re: Post Nissen Fundoplication Issues

I gave in today and realized I have to get back on an antidepressant. I stopped mine last spring just before we sold our new home and bought a smaller one and I had my surgery. It was a very hectic time followed by the surgery and the unpleasant recovery and I've just kept going downhill.

I think everyone has a little depression now and then but dealing with my GERD for so very long really wore on my body and my brain and I think they've both been paying for it the hard way. So, I called my doc and he agreed.

I have no idea if it will help any of the post-op problems but I bet I can tell you in a couple or three weeks. I just started today and if it does nothing but help me get my appetite back I'll be grateful.

My computer has had some problems and my ******** wall has been down and it's raining and cloudy here today and I didn't sleep again last night. I hope I can sleep tonight but being new on the AD I'm not sure how it will go. I'm going to continue with the med however because in spite of all my post-op complaints many of them fit the profile for depression as well.

I hope you're having a good week.
