I have been on hgh for the past 6 months and all I can say is wow, the product is the bomb. Im using Ansomone from Anke Bio which is pharmaceutical grade hGH produced in China. But I came off for a couple of weeks and have recently had some serious insomnia and was hoping that the new kit of Ansomone will have me sleeping better. But I can't remember how quick this effect manifested itself. I remember the vivid deep sleep and dreams. But now I can't sleep and its making me crazy!!

So I am now 9 days post op and wondering how things have progressed with you. I also have hypothyroidism and hypoparathyroidism (can't take anything with extra calcium), so any info you can provide would give me a great leg up on my proactive research.

Thank you,

Hi Brandy!! I am doing much better than I was when I wrote that post. I'm taking a natural medicine to manage the hot flashes, and it's helping. My moods are evening out, although I still have some days where I just curl up into a ball and cry. The enormity of what has happened to me hits me really hard sometimes, but I just tell myself that I'm on the sunny side of it now! I've had a lot of trouble with some very painful scar tissue around my incisions (I had five), and that's less now. Also, I think all my innards are done moving themselves around, and have finally decided where they will permanently live from now on so that's better too. I don't take any meds to help me sleep, b/c I don't like how they make me feel in the morning. I've always had trouble with bowel movements, but that issue has definitely gotten better too. I always say that if a person can sleep and poop, they've got the world in the palm of their hand!!
I'm going to focus on losing some weight, helping myself feel better physically and emotionally, and hopefully it will be onward and upward!! Let me know how you're doing.

Surgical menopause or just going crazy? No HRT

Hello all,
I had a partial hysterectomy with my left ovary remaining at age 32. At 39, I had stage 3c breast cancer. Now since I could not take tamoxifen due to liver disease I had to either take shots to kill my ovary or have it surgically removed. Estrogen is out of the question for me and I must take a hormone blocker. My surgery was today. I am handling the soreness very well so far but down about have absolutely no boobs or estrogen. I have already had a big crying spell just eight hours after surgery.

I teach third graders and am terrified of being cursed with symptoms that will make me irritable with my babies or these weird crying spells that they will not understand. I am on Celexa (an antidepressant) and relizen ( bee pollen for hot flashes).

I'm praying I can handle this!
