Hello Ladies, its been awhile, my surgery TAH was performed on 12/28/12. It took a very long time to heal and feel no pain burning stretching.
My surgeon started me on Estridol 2mg at my 6 week appointment, and I went from 117 pounds to 134 pounds. This is UNACCEPTABEL!!
I have asked the Doctor about adding progestron or testrone to my hormones and I've been told over and over that I do not need anythign else other than estrogen replacement. I am confused by this, don't our bodies need more than JUST estrogen??
My thyroid has been checked and its fine and I am told my estrogen level is perfect and that may be but I am 4'11" tall I have NEVER been over 120 pounds unless i was pregnant with one of my children. My eating hasn't changed at all, my activity level is the same as its always been.
They have now added Wellbutrin ( generic ) 300mg SR daily to help with "depression". I'm not depressed I don't like the weight gain!!! I don't understand it YES I hate my body right now, ( its NEVER looked like this behaved like this in my 34 years so of course I don't like it and i want a reason ). Not taking estrogen my doctor does not support because I am 34 he feels my skin will dry out and my bones will get weak and I will premature age. Yet I feel like its here take this estrogen at the maximum dosage and just shut up about it...
I have NO ovaries, NO uterus, and a small piece of cervix left. Its been almost 6 months. I want my life back.
Do any of you take other hormone replacements besides estrogen?? How has your bodies responded to estridol?? SOMEONE HELP!! This is not what I bargined for...
