Can you still get pms symtoms after a hystorectomy?

Hey ladies, I am 2 weeks post op today and it should have been the time my period was gonna start. I feel bloated and very moody today. Can you still have these symptoms around the time of your period or are my hormones a little screwed up? My right ovary was removed but I still have my left ovary. Just wondering...

Absolutely! You can have all the pms symptoms except for bleeding and for most of us, cramping. You are still cycling and will continue to do so until menopause.

Yes- I have both ovaries, and have pms to the T. And I was having bleeding for three weeks, I just got done pmsn of two weeks! Cramps, bloating, irritable, cravings all of it. SO sorry to find out we still get pms after all that huh!

I had period like cramps the day after Christmas but I think it was bc I over did it at Christmas. I don't have cramps now just feel bloated and really moody.

Re: Can you still get pms symtoms after a hystorectomy?

mhermis, my doctor told me that I would still get moody, breast tenderness, bloating, and possibly some pain around the time I would get my period. I am just like you, kept only left ovary. I was due to get my period this week and I sure could tell! I felt down in the dumps and occasionally crying for most of the week, then I woke up in the middle of the night totally irritated and ticked off at nothing (which is normally how my moodiness manifests itself), plus I snapped at my husband for something stupid.
I also had some pain, but I am only at day 8 of recovery so I won't know for sure if I get true period cramps or not until maybe next month. I think the cramps you experienced might still be from the healing process, it is kind of soon to tell.

Well I had a hysterectomy 4 weeks ago, and been struggling with pms for years, I thought this operation would take the pms away. Well I was wrong, back to the mood changes and crying and irritability once again!! What a dissapointment.

Re: Can you still get pms symtoms after a hystorectomy?

Yes, if you still have ovaries, they still continue to release the hormones responsible for pms. I should be having my period now and I got all the usual tender breasts, tearful (but worse because I'm still feeling a little emotionally unbalanced from the surgery!), bloated and craving chocolate. The BEST thing for me though - no excruciating menstrual cramps or lower back pain that I used to get every month without fail!
