7 years ago i gad open heart surgery with complications that hD ne in a coma for 10 days . If anyone should have PTSD, it should br me. Fortunately the doctor had me on anti depressants and anti anxiety medicines for severL months afterwards. It doesnt help that the medical staff asks you "do you gave anxiety? Fo you want to hurt yourself? Etc"My husband suffered more than me as he feared for my life, MendedHearts hearts meetings and friendships have been helpful to him especially even now years later.
If you are having issues, tell your doctors honestly. They will prescribe help for you
