To dream that you or someone else is undergoing surgery suggests that some aspect of your life - a person, issue, or situation - needs to be removed. It is influencing you negatively. Perhaps someone in power is trying to persuade you to do something you are uncomfortable with. Alternatively, you are feeling the influence of some authority figure. This dream may also be incorporating your anxieties regarding a scheduled operation or your general well-being.
Vision: Dreaming about surgery could mean physical or emotional problems that need treatment. It could also mean help in your present situation. Someone else in surgery: a sad or even tragic event. See Hospital, Illness.
Depth Psychology: Surgery indicates the need to remove something from your emotional life. While the dream sometimes reveals a fear of illness, most of the time it means drastic changes because of something you did.
Surgery in a dream represents the real limb which is operated on in one’s dream.
If a young man or a young woman see themselves having an operation where their chest is opened, or having an open heart surgery for example in a dream, it means that they are in love. As for elderly people, it means distress. Having a minor surgery on the thumb in a dream means signing a loan. (Also see Body’; Chest)
To dream that you or someone else is undergoing surgery represents the opening of the self and the need for emotional healing. You need to eliminate something from your life that is not positive. This is also a very common dream for those who are facing upcoming surgery in real life. Also see “Cosmetic Surgery” and “Lobotomy”
