I'm five months post-op now and have rapid mood swings...maybe part bipolar, maybe part hormonal, my psychiatrist isn't quite sure which is which so she's increasing my mood stabilizer in the mean time to try to ease the symptoms of the irritability and anger that I feel. It's getting worse and I'm trying hard to keep a leash on it. Anyone else endure this at five months, or whenever, for that matter, and how do you handle it? I go to my surgeon's office tomorrow per their recommendation cuz of my fatigue and I'll bring it up there too. I feel full and never thirsty either. Drinking is a chore, nothing tastes good, I'm pushing myself to drink, I don't get hungry at all until night, then I think it's emotional hunger cuz my anger flares so quickly at night for some reason. I'm keeping it in check, but sometimes it's so hard. Anyone else coping with these massive mood swings that are just nuts and how do you cope?
