Weight Gain & Estadol 2mg NOT HAPPY

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...

Thank You

Weight Gain & Estadol 2mg NOT HAPPY

I had TVH with ovary removal. I was put on 1mg estradiol and think it's too much. Going to cut back to 0.5 at 6 month point. I don't believe it is the estrogen personally. I am 5 weeks out this week.I truly believe in plant base diet and light exercise. I've lost 12 pounds. Check out the documentary forks over knives. Truly life changing. Maybe cut back for 6 month to 1mg and have your blood drawn again. There is no money in health care only sick care. Please ask that your lab results be provided and not just verbal. Good luck
