It's hard for me to guess what's happening, not knowing what sort of op this was. Its highly unusual for this sort of complex set of depressive symptoms and problems to arise so suddenly after operations. And what sort of "doc" is involved ? Surgeons are marvellous at cutting things, but hardly the best advisors on emotioanl and psych matters. You shopuld be seeing a shrink for a proper assessment and proper treatment planning, which should presumably include CBT style counselling as well as medication.
If a true Depression was present, 8 months on an AD is usualyl not enough. And it is not usual after surgery to need to continue on morphine chronically - what was the surgivcal diagnosis ? Morphine can indeed cause emotional difficulties, and can cause dependency and problems in reducing the doses.
