Congrats on making it this far. You're doing really well in the continence arena, as you know.
As far as the feeling of depression, it's VERY normal and I think if they will admit it, many guys on here are on antidepressants. If you've been battling bi-polar, then call your doc. This surgery is famous for getting brain chemicals out of whack. It is a huge stressor, which, as you know, brings on depression. As you know, there is no shame in it. It is chemistry. Take care of your mental health just as you have been taking care of your physical health.
Be kind to yourself. You've been through a lot.
