HRT / IC / not sleeping post hysterectomy

I have 3 topics to ask about:

1. HRT - Hormone Replacement Therapy - I am 41 and the dr is going to start me on them slowly and low dose because he wasn't able to get all the endometrosis and hormones is what fuels it. I'm scared because of the side effects as to whether I should take them or not?

2. IC - Interstital Cystitis of Bladder - Does anyone else have this and will I ever not have the urge to go to the bathroom every 2 -3 hours even during sleep hours?

3. Not sleeping - I can't go to sleep at night even if I'm tired. My mind wanders and then when I do fall asleep then its time to get up and go pee, Can't rest.

I understand and am right there with you. Hurts to pee 6 weeks post op, don't know if I have IC yet, doc said give it 6 weeks, not sleeping, my PC just gave me some sleeping pills which carry me 4 hours at a time, then I have to get up to pee which starts the pain over again. NO infection. Could this be catheter trauma/damage? What is IC and does the hysterectomy cause it?

Re: HRT / IC / not sleeping post hysterectomy

IC is Interstitial Cystitis of the Bladder and usually endometriosis causes it. My Dr did a Cystoscopy bladder biopsy during my OP laparoscopy before my Hysterectomy and that is how he found out I had it.
