I'm wondering that too. I had 3 months of Lupron shots. My last shot was May 1. So now I'm waiting for the beast to return. I've noticed some of the negative side effects (headache, skin problems) are less of a problem, but I wonder when those ovaries will kick in too.
I had my last shot on 28th April, so we are pretty close in time.
Isn't it frustrating just waiting to see if anything happens?? Gynae said he couldn't guarantee that ovaries would work after the hyst, but didn't see any reason why they shouldn't. I am just hoping that something happens soon. Good luck to you too.
I had my last injection April 22 and my TAH-LSO on May 16th. Dr. told me ovary could start working as soon as 4 weeks after last injection. I am having way less hotflashes so I think it, (Right Ovary), might be starting to work. Not to mention I bought a sofa one day and returned it the next in emotional/confused turmoil???? : ) Hope this helps.
Hey Lupron ladies. I was on 6 mo. of Lupron and had my last injection on April 11th. Just over the last week or so I have noticed the hot flashes and night sweats have considerably subsided. I also feel like aunt flo is about to come visiting. Only 2 weeks to go until surgery . I also thought the side effects would never stop. But they finally did. Hope this helps.
I had my last Lupron shot the 28th of April. I was told I had to have the TVH within a week or two, because the effects would start wearing off immediately and the uterus would start growing back to its larger size. My surgery was May 5.
I'm sure I've had a "period" already since the surgery. My breast got sore and I felt "periody". But, no blood, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.
I HAD 3 SHOTS OF LUPRON TO SHRINK MY UTERUS AND FIBROIDS. I HAD MY OPERATION ON MAY 30TH. I HAD A TRANS VAGINAL HYSTERECTOMY, HE LEFT ME WITH ONE OVARY AND SAID BOTH WERE HEALTHY BUT I WAS BLEEDING TOO MUCH DURING SURGERY AND HE HAD TO CLAMP IT OFF.
I WANTED MY OVARIES BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO BE ON HORMONE REPLACEMENT.
MY QUESTIONS ARE
1 . WHEN WILL THE HOT FLASHES AND NIGHT SWEATS STOP.
2. HOW CAN I GET MY OVARY TO KICK IN. ANY TYPE OF HOME REMEDY. I PREFER TO STAY AWAY FROM DRUGS, (WE DON'T GET ALONG)
3. I JUST READ THAT A WOMEN SAID IT FEELS LIKE YOU ARE HAVING A PERIOD, BUT NO BLOOD. WHAT IS THAT ABOUT.
