Michelle, you may find that you're sitting differently, moving differently, as you compensate for the surgery spot, so you may be using muscles that aren't accustomed to such use.

When you're out, if it is nice weather, let the sun shine on your face for a little while. I find that is such a great boost if my mood is low. I think it's a combination of nerves sensing the sun, the light coming in through the eyes (or lids) and the vitamin D that you're making. This is something good with or without surgery. :)

Give yourself a few more days before you start weaning yourself from round-the-clock company. At least until the staples have come out and the high power pain medications are finished. Did they tell you when you can drive?
