It sound like a rough time for you right now and being post op must be hard.
You say you cannot take antidepressants because they make you depressed? When was that? There are many more types on the market now that work a bit different. There are also supplements at health food stores.
Also no Benzos for sleep how about hallucinates like ambien or lunesta? Or Melatonin/herbal rememdies?
As for pain no nsaids or tylenol so that is a tough one. Wow maybe morphine? Or codeine?
It sounds like you need a f/u with your Doctor to address your rx needs. You need some pain and sleep relief in order to fully recuperate.
Good luck to you
