Depression, panic attacks post hysterectomy. Have one ovary intact. Is of result of surgery?

I had a hysterectomy last year. As a result from this I am experiencing depression on 10mg Paxil for this. I also am experiencing panic attacks could this be related to the surgery or not. I still have my left ovary and everything on the left side. I had to have right ovary,right falloopian tube and scare tissue removed 3-4 months after initial surgery due to ovarian cysts rupturing on that side.

hi although the left side is intact, you may consult your gynecologist to exclude a phenomenon called 'hot flush' after surgical menopause..otherwise paxil is a good choice to counter panic although it may or may not be related with the operation..don't can also try for some psychological management..thanks..
