I am normally not a complainer but I had TLHR on 6/11/18 and feel I might not have made the right choice. I basically had no alternative I was bone on bone,tried every alternative then decided on surgery. Funny thing was 5 days prior to surgery I felt good maybe that was my sign not to get surgery.The pain the first 2 nights was as bad as childbearing it could not be controlled. As I arrived home the reality hit me, I would be stuck in this house looking out my window on this 88 degree day at my pool my emotions took over. I have basically cried constantly since I been home. Yes the pain is more manageable but nights are rough,my therapist keeps reminding me this is temporary. I feel so alone and isloated. I stay in my room upstairs mostly all day. Does anyone else feel this way? Also no appetite, unable to move bowels despite stool softners,and plenty of liquids. Before this happened I took care of my mom ,babysat my 3 year old granson,I feel I am letting everybody done. Mybhusband is of much use,he is old school and says crying wont help.
