“Hi everyone. I’m a new gall bladder surgery patient and like the rest of you, found this board by searching to find out why this is so difficult. I’m very surprised to not see depression listed very often. I’m having a terrible time with it. I am 5 days post-op and haven’t even had time to experience the horrors that obviously await.

I am a 50 y/o female, divorced, no kids. Though the new year, 2011 should be a time to be thinking positive, I don’t have an ounce of positive thinking in me. I fully regret having the surgery, but I really had no choice. Did any of you feel like you simply did not want to go on?”
