Post Operation Depression

Posted by bulldog2 on October 21, 2009, at 12:01:48

Had my left hip replaced at the end of September. Personally for me this was a tough operation and rehab has been grinding.

I've suffered from chronic atypical depression on and off most of my life. Often just a mild form.

Ive found after this operation I've spiraled into a very deep fearful depression. I'm often afraid to turn the lights off at night for fear I will die in my sleep.

I was up to 60 mg of percocet before and after the operation. I've been attempting to wean myself off of the percocet. Yesterday I went down to 20 mg.

Perhaps weaning off the percocet is causing this depression?
Could the shock off the operation trigger a depression?
