My husband had IL in jan 2019. He now eats well, little and often, dumping/nausea rare now, has put a little weight on too. Had a good holiday in Tenerife and seemed to be doing well. BUT...... he is now feeling depressed and although having some telephone counselling and taking an anti-depressant Sertraline, it doesn’t seem to be improving. Apparently these meds can make you feel worse before better, he is to see his GP in a couple of weeks. He is trying so hard, and as the day progresses his mood lifts a bit. I am not good with dealing with depression, so I feel useless and unable to help him. Any advice and tips would be great please. Thanks in advance, where would we be without this forum?!
