My depression came on about month 4 after bariatric surgery and I’m now 5 months out. My doctor says it could be hormones due to losing 83 lbs and so much fat mass quickly.
I am on anti-depressant meds, thinking is fragmented. Dr says to ‘hang in’. If it lasts more than a month or two, it probably isn’t related to the surgery.
It’s agonizing. They did say depression might show up post surgery, true, but this is horrible.
Can you relate?
