Emotional backlash

It's been 6 weeks since I had the laporoscopy and this is my first period. The pain isn't as bad as I expected but my emotions are all over the place. I haven't slept for days and I've even missed work locked in my bedroom in tears, is it normal to feel like this?

I haven't felt like myself at all since the op, and I'm frustrated by the lack of information and support I've received before/after but since I've come on, I feel like I've hit rock bottom and there's no rational reasoning behind it....

I feel like there was no point behind the surgery to end up feeling worse than I did before, the physical pain was much easier to deal with than this emotional backlash.

Shame not good you feeling like this it could just be all your hormones being all over the place with the op and the endo, when I first went back on the pill to try help with my pain I was exactly the same as you and I knew it was because of the hormones my body doesn't like extra hormone lol, I ended up having three weeks of emotions running high and low and was so nasty to my oh he came in said hello and I flew of the handle called him everything under the sun then told him to leave I didn't want him here, it was then I realised I needed serious help so I spoke things through with doc and they decided my best option was to go on an anti depressant she said with all that was going on and hormones everywhere it would help. And yippee or did help and I felt like myself again though I do have good and bad days Hun though nothing as bad and the bad days are the constant pain lack of sleep and constipation with all my medication. Good luck Hun and hope your ok here if you need a chat xxxd
