IMHO, it's normal! I felt very much the same way, especially when they started messing with changing up my meds. And the depression is also normal. PLEASE let her know that. No one told me how normal my reactions were, even my extreme depression. It made things harder for me, because I couldn't understand why I felt so badly.
A few months after my surgery, a friend who suffered from clinical depression explained the stages of loss to me, and I could tell I had went through them exactly.
Also, please tell her to ask questions of us. If she's comfortable enough to tell you, so you can relay them to us, then we can help. We've all been there!
I know it would have helped me tremendously.
I hope she feels better soon. Make sure she gets up and walks, even though it will be hard for her. The walking really helps. As soon as you are moving again, you begin to feal "normal" agian.
Let me know if there's anything I can do or questions I can answer!

I felt kind of dizzy and nauseated after I had a blood transfusion. Is she eating anything? Maybe she could eat something before getting her pain medication, I was only on Tylenol 3 after they removed the pump. Could they give her something she has taken for pain before, I really think it's the medicine and the blood transfusion combined.

Hope she feels better soon!

i had a blood transfusion also, that isn't uncommon to have that happen.
As for feeling sick that is probably the pain meds ask them to give her some zophran (sp?) or phenogren, that should help with that alot.

I was dizzy too and I cried one day all day! Then I cried all day again when I was at home when I stopped taking my pain killers. I felt so vurnerable and depressed because everyone was going to die some day! My poor hubby he was so torn up because I am usaully such a happy go lucky sort of person.
