Default Colloid Cyst Removal

Hello,
I am on here for my cousin to find some info for her. Back in Oct she had emergency surgery to remove a Colloid Cyst. It was the size of a fist the Neuro said. She is 38yr old. Even though she came out of surgery with no physical effect she is having a lot of emotional issues. Before the surgery she was on Paxil and Celexa for depression. After the surgery she had to relive some traumatic experiences because she didn't remember them before the surgery one was her mother dying a few month's before. She is more depressed now then ever. Once a religious person she no longer believes there is a God. She no longer likes her job she worked so hard to get her degree in. Her Primary Dr put her on Prozac. I personally don't believe her Primary should be prescribing anything to do that effects her brain seeing that her surgery wasn't even a yr ago and this may not be a chemical imbalance. Her Surgeon said she was lucky to come thru this the way she did. I am trying to gather information to take to her so she can see that she should be followed by a Neurologist & Psychiatrist that understands how her brain works even after having this cyst removed. I don't believe that she is just going to be like this as her Primary Dr says I do believe there is something out there to help her I just need some direction. When I search for TBI & PTSD all I get are VA and Military sites. I would appreciate any feed back that I can get for her. Not only is she my cousin , she is my best friend and I hate seeing her go through this. I need to help her before her thoughts get the best of her. She is not suicidal right now but she does believe she is being punished by living through this.
