confused and depressed

just returned from hospital this afternoon, after a vaginal hysterectomy leaving the ovaries in place. I live in Morocco and although my language skills are pretty good, when you are ill, all you really want is to understand COMPLETELY what is going on!
I was in 2 days. Hysterectomy was advised for a prolapsed uterus and 4 children! I suffer badly from depression anyway, but I have come home soooooo low and getting lower, I can feel it happening. Is this someting that is normal, even for people who dont suffer from depression? I am also as bloated as a 7 month pregnant woman, not to mention the EXCRUTIATING agony which is a bowel movement!! Apart from it all being so wearing and tiring, please tell me it gets better..................

Re: confused and depressed

Hi if you just got home after having a hysterectomy it is very normal to feel depleated, worn out and depressed. THe drugs alone can do it. Rest.
I had my hysterectomy in July. I had been in such pain prior to the surgery for two years, it was a joy afterwards. However, I was tired. The dr told me it actually takes a year to fully recover.
Hang in there. Your body has been through a trauma. Here's a hug.
