2 failed back surgeries and depression

Hi everyone. I recently had two back surgeries within 8 weeks of each other. I thought after my doctor did the second one, things would start getting better. I was wrong. My back doesn't seem to be healing and I am mentally exhausted. I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety when I was in my teens. It hasn't been much of an issue lately until my surgeries. I just feel so lost and sad all the time. I have such a supportive husband and family but nothing seems to be pulling me from my funk. Has anyone been through this? Advice? Ways to get out of this depression funk? Anything would be so wonderful. Thank you so much.
