Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):

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.
