It's Emily here from Breast Cancer Care.
I'm sorry to hear you're feeling so low at the moment. I wanted to let you know that we'd be happy to put you in touch with one of our telephone support volunteers who's had a similar experience to you, and is a couple of years past having had their mastectomy. Sometimes it can help to talk to someone who's been there too, to help you feel less alone.
If you think this would help, feel free to give us a ring on 0345 077 1893 and we'd be happy to put you in touch with someone.

Hi Paula. I think it is pretty normal. I had the same thing happen to me with mastectomy followed by haematoma and then another surgery for lymph node level 2 removal. I felt down too and cried lots and my GP told me that having two anaesthetics close together takes longer to recover from than one operation. Going through it all is so overwhelming it is only natural that it will take its toll somewhere along the line. I hope you feel better soon and do ask for help from your GP with your sleeping problems if they persist. I had CBT for sleep problems which was a great help. All the best.
