Hi grandmaroses, I understand, but remember it is really early in your recovery process, and you will have ("down") days, it is normal. But it might not be a bad idea to check in with your Doctor just to make sure everything is OK and healing well! I know it is hard when you start feeling lousy after having some really good days during your recovery, and even worse when it is late at night when your alone. It always seems that much worse. Have you been doing anything that might cause you to be feeling down? Possibly over doing it? Please take care of yourself!
Try and rest if you can, I wish I could say something that would make you feel better, but do know your not alone, we are all here for you!
