    post op anxiety


    #PanicDisorder
    Post op day 4 after hip arthroscopy to fix FAI and labral tear. I was finally able to take my first shower. It didn't go so well. I apparently was under so much stress I started to hyperventilate. I began to black out. Ears ringing, couldn't talk, and then my hands and feet clenched up and started to become numb. Luckily my husband was with me and after about 10 long minutes he was able to help me to the bed. I lay there thinking I was dying. I've never experienced a panic attack like that. My husband called EMS because I couldn't talk and felt like I was suffocating and my hands wouldn't open. All my vitals were ok except my O2 stats. They said that happens during hyperventilation. I started to feel better after about 30 mins. and stayed home. It was so traumatizing to me and now it's the next day and it's all I can think about. I can't stop worrying that the worst outcomes possible after a surgery are going to happen to me. This is so hard for me to go through with already having severe depression and now my anxiety is obviously out of control. Has anyone experienced this type of stuff post op? #alwaysscared #Tryingtobestrong #PanicAttacks #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder #MajorDepressiveDisorder #Postop
