Eileen, I myself had my second brain surgery in June 08, I also suffer from depression. I think some of it is normal. My Dr. has told me so. The body goes through so much. Do you also have seizures if I may ask? I hope you have or are starting to heal by now. I wish you all the best. My Dr. also says the second surgery is almost always harder than the first. I know it was for me. I was in the hospital for 2 days for the first and the surgery lasted for 15 1/2 hours. This last one I was in the hospital for a week, and I am still recovering 6 months later, slowely but surely. God Bless You.

Hi, I agree as well. I had my 1st surgery Oct. 0f 08 then the second, which was also MUCH MUCH harder Nov. of 08. I am also still recovery from the second surgery. And yes, I have been quite depressed since. I've been having a lot of ups and downs, days when I feel like I can get through it, and other days, when I just want to give up.
