Lisa, as Montrealaise has said, you are not the only one to get depressed like this. Try Googling for the Five Stages of Injury Grief. The loss of mobility and independence are hard. Healing takes energy and pain costs energy, so you're tired and cranky. That's normal in the circumstances.
Great that you can swim and get some exercise (I'm a long-distance runner and being stuck on a sofa for weeks, unable to run or even cycle or swim, drove me insane).
Hang in there! Rant here when you need to. Get out into green spaces if you can (local parkland?).
It -does- get better.
