I'm 5 days post op, home 2 days. I'm having trouble with my emotions. I'm okay one moment and just really needy the next. My husband blew up at me when I kept asking him to talk to me, tell me he was glad I was okay...stuff men just don't normally say. Why did I do that? He loves me, he was there with me the whole 3 days in the hospital, but I feel alone. I feel useless and ugly. He made a comment about that I'd finally got a good looking nurse the 2nd nite on nite shift. He's a guy, he makes comments like that often, but he's faithful and he definitely makes me feel wanted and loved. He's been cuddly and loving, but for some reason, I'm extra sensitive and that comment, just made me feel lower than low. I hadn't had a bath in 3 days, my hair stuck out everywhere, glasses, incision, sore, can't get up/down. Why couldn't he have just gave me what I needed and that was for him to say something sweet. He's not one for romance or talking a lot.
I feel like a wreck and have been trying to convince myself that it's the pain medication, the surgery, ?????? can this do this? Or should I worry about my marriage?
