HI...We really do have alot in common. I hope I continue as well as you, since you are almost at one year. By the way, at 10 months, is libido still there???

Emotionally level after oophorectomy plus HRT?

I'm so glad someone else feels the same way. I'm leaving in 30 min. to see my doc before my surgery next Tuesday. I'm praying I won't forget to ask any pertinent questions -- I have so many! I woke up this morning thinking, "Well, I'm going to emphasize all my concerns to my doc and trust that God will give her the wisdom and discernment to do whatever will make make me healthier, emotionally and physically -- essentially, whole." I'll touch base afterward ...

Emotionally level after oophorectomy plus HRT?

This is what I dread more than the surgery..the recovery and trying to find what is right for me. What is the norm? I was told I'll leave the OR with patch..what if I don't like the patch or it doesn't like me? What's next, pill? shot? And to make matters worse, my husband has the kids convinced that when I come home I'll be a moster.

Hi, question_box. I just noticed your surgery date is the same as mine, Aug. 26. I just got back from my consultation with my doctor, and she said she plans on removing only my uterus, but should there be other "severe" problems, she will use her judgment. I asked her if she had to remove my ovaries would she give me a patch or something to regulate my hormones right afterward, and she said she would not until the next morning. Like you, I'm concerned more about the hormones than anything else as I already have mood swings with my monthly cycles. I can't imagine feeling worse than I sometimes do! This is what has given me peace: I know God wants me to be healthy, and I believe that He will use this surgery and my doctor to gift me with better health -- wholeness! -- than before. Like my husband said, "Kathy, if you've got tumors on your uterus and cysts on your ovaries -- that can't be good." That put things in better perspective for me -- at least today.--

I was an emotional mess prior to surgery, and I have been MUCH better since my LSH/BSO. It did take almost 6 months for me to realize that, though.... probably because I also took Lupron.

thanks brenda

loved reading your words of encouragement, brenda! could you translate what the initials mean in terms of what kind of hysterectomy you had? i'm still not familiar with all the alphabet soup!)- (I could use a tutorial.)
