Don't expect it to: Having gotten past tem, there's good reason to think you'll be okay. It's not impossible for some to return, but your Dr can slow down the rate of increase if necessary - It will really help if you don't expect them to return since many of these feelings can be generated by our minds alone from the familiar recent experience. This is unnecessary but easy to do. Don't! I hope it goes well.
