Is it common to experience depression after having surgery?


Answer by  Kayla13 (42)

Yes, it is very common. Surgery is a major life altering procedure for the most part and depending on the severity, it's very difficult. Just relax, take some time and try your hardest to do little things that make you yourself.

Depression after surgery is more common than people think. The being diagnosed with an illness, the physical and emotional stress that surgery brings can cause depression.

I would guess that depression after surgery would be somewhat common, due to a decrease in levels of serotonin from lack of exercise. This should disappear as your recovery progresses.
