As we have mentioned, some people experience depression after liver donation surgery.
Signs of depression can include: feeling tired even after you have rested, extreme sadness, or losing interest in things you used to enjoy. These feelings can happen even in people who haven't had depression before. Be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you experience any of these things.
It's also very common to have brief mood swings, or to feel confused, anxious, or sad after this and other surgeries.
You should try to talk about these feelings as much as possible with friends or family, and be very forgiving of yourself. In fact, it may be your family members or friends that first notice any changes in your behavior.
If it becomes difficult for you to do your everyday activities, call your healthcare providers and they will talk about ways to help you. If necessary, medication can be prescribed.
