Estrogen Levels after complete hyst

Please Help!! I am so frustrated. I am 36 and I had a full hysterectomy 2.5 years ago (both ovaries removed) and I am not taking any hormones due to my mom's breast cancer hystery. I have been having really bad mood swings and started lactacting 6 months ago. I had a galactogram done and thankfully the radiologist did not see any tumors or concerns on her end, but she did say that all of my ducts were very milky and suggested I have some bloodwork done. My doctor just called me and said that my hormone levels were all normal, but I am not convinced. My estrogen was 184, which seems high to me since I don't have ovaries or HRT. Does anyone know the estrogen range? My prolactin level was 4.9 and my progesterone was .4. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! I am so frustrated with my doctor at this point and I just don't know what to do. Thanks!!!!

Re: Estrogen Levels after complete hyst

estrogen is a bit high. You're taking spironalactone which is suppressing androgens, so that might be part of this. Other ranges are normal.

I'm confused about what it is you want your dr to do?

Re: Estrogen Levels after complete hyst

Galactorrhea can occur in a minority of people on medications such as Effexor. Hypothyroidism is also an atypical but real possibility. Working towards uncovering the cause should continue. Please see an endocrinologist!
Unilateral (one sided) breast discharge makes one worry about breast cancer. You don't seem to be having that.
An estradiol level of 184 does seem high, but I doubt it is the cause of the milk production. After the galactorrhea work up, consider having a repeat check.
