I was diagnosed with kidney cancer in late June and had surgery on July 22nd. I was just wondering if anyone has had a feeling of sadness or depression after the surgery? I sometimes wonder what in the heck my problem is because I should be thankful that mine was found early and it looks like they got it all with surgery. I AM thankful, but it seems like the whole ordeal from beginning to end went so fast that I really didn't have time to deal with it. Is it normal to feel sad or depressed afterwards? I just want to sit down and have a good cry, but I resist because I feel like I should be happy instead of sad. Any thoughts? Thank you.
