Did you find changes in your health after gone through or recovered from a major operation? I came up to this discussion after an observation i've done to my best friend,she was quiet healthy before gone through from a major operation,she dis a kidney transplant a year ago and it was done successfully.But there were changes i find after that operation,she is more likely to be easy to catch colds and her temper is not as good as before.She is more likely to be affected emotionally.I don't know if that was a side effect from the operation she's gone through? How many of you having this experienced.You may want to share it with me then i can have a good consideration about my bestfriend situation? Thank you and happy lotting!Good day everyone!

hi cloud31 yes I found that I was run down a bit after I had my shoulder joint replacement surgery. That was because there is some loss of blood in any surgery and I was already borderline anemic so they took a blood test then gave me a pint of blood. that perked me up considerably. Also I think that a lot of it is just emotional. You have to rev yourself up to have the surgery then it is sort of a let down afterwards.But it all evens out in a few weeks and you are pretty much back to your normal self. for me though there was a lot of emotional debris to go through as Idid not recover much use of my left arm so I had to cope with this and you wou ld be surprise just how much you actually use your left arm. I could not lift my left arm up to comb my hair for examp;le or turn off a higher than usual light switch. or reach a tall shelf in your kitchen,
