A surgical procedure can represent:
- The idea of someone crossing your personal boundaries, with or without your permission (consider whether the surgery in the dream was with or without your permission). Perhaps you feel that someone in your life is trying to take advantage of you, force their opinion on you, or "get into your business." Dreaming that someone is doing surgery on you without your permission often is an indication of a Toxic Dream.
- Dreaming that you need surgery in order to correct a health problem could mean you're feeling under the weather or not your usual self mentally or physically, or that you're afraid of this happening.
