insomnia after surgery! anyone else?



  • I cant take any pain meds, wish i could, a rare blood disease and severe reactions does not afford me the privledge of having pain relief. I even had a hysterectomy with no pain meds, that was a real challenge but by the Grace of God, i gt through that and will get through this to.

    Thanks for your concern and support

    This group of people are truly compassonate and caring and its a blessing
  • Hi
    What is the test for PTSD?
    And is it given by a psychologist?

  • So sorry to hear.
    In my case, the night after surgery, my respiration was so incredibly relaxed that my body would wake me up to force me to breathe. I had to remain conscious for a couple of hours to make sure I breathed correctly, was hyperventilating (and had to focus really hard not to lose control). Eventually got a few hours in.

    My PCP's office had an online test on an iPad. It was really for anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
