I had hand surgery a few weeks ago. I feel very defeated and havin fb to learn how to do things again sucks. Is depression apart of healing? I feel like such a loser. I haven’t been able to work and now we are suffering. Due to it is it normal the way I’m feeling?
Depression is not uncommon after a surgery. Your body went through trauma, and your mind/body has to process that. You may need a short term antidepressant until your bodies healed fully
It can be. You have the discomfort from the surgery and a shortage of cash because you are not working. That can lower your self esteem and that can cause depression. Once things get back to normal you will feel better.
I’d say talk to your doctor. Depression is nothing to wait around for… There is help out there! I promise!
I also had hand surgery in May. Multiple breaks in my wrist. Recommend CBD oil from a health food store. It’s non addictive. The creams work too. Also, go to Occupational Therapy to get full use back.
