Hi!
Well, frontal lobe is responsible for memory and social behavior. However, depression and panic attacks can be due to post surgery trauma. This can be treated by counseling and behavior therapies and people are known to overcome this and move on with life.  
Memory is a grey area. If you have an otherwise intact memory, forgetting little things could be due to tension. You need a complete battery of memory testing to ascertain the degree of memory loss. Please discuss with your treating doctor. Take care!
