Is it normal to have mood swings after surgery? After gettingthrough 2.5 weeks of recovery i am now just so emotional its crazy! I had 2 really goodpost op days and was outside, hangingnwith myfamily and I felt amazing. Then yesterday i started having some pain and all this sadness has set in. Crying at stories, feeling sorry for myself, being sad. Tonight imtookma nice shower by myself finally and now im like on this super happy high. What the hell is wrong with me? Is it part of gettin off all the pain meds maybe?
