Going through early menopause anyway?

I had a visit with my regular physician about some long-term health issues that I thought were unrelated to the hyst and all of the GYN problems I have been having. He did some blood work to see if it was my hormones causing all of the problems becuase, to him, it sounded like that was the case. He said there are indications that I am going through early menopause. How odd. I didn't tell him I was closer to menopause than he thought because I didn't tell him about the hysterectomy and I don't know why I didn't. I know I should have so that he wouldn't try to fix me but I couldn't bring it up. Perhaps I just didn't want his opinion on the matter and/or I got tired of talking about me and my problems. I really don't enjoy doctor visits. Anyway, since my hormones are a mess anyway, I am hoping the HRT will even them out and I will feel so much better. On the other hand, what if the HRT doesn't work as it should because I am not starting out with even levels of hormones in the first place? Now I am worried.

Hi JoAnn, I'm not sure I understand why you went to see your GP if you have discussed your problems with your GYN and have decided on a TAH BSO. Perhaps you are having doubts about your decision? If so, it's never too late to get a second opinion.

What is the reason for your TAH BSO? If you'd like to share your reasons, then perhaps some of the sisters can let you know of their experiences with similar problems.

I don't think that it's a good idea to begin taking HRT this close to your surgery without first, your surgeon knowing about it, and second, it's not fair to your GP who may be prescribing meds without knowing your accurate medical and upcoming surgical history.

If you're unsure that surgery is right for you, then please, obtain a second or even third opinion. It's very important that you understand all of your options and know that you are making the right decision. Once this surgery is done, it can't be reversed.

Let us know how you make out, ok?

Best wishes to you and s

Going through early menopause anyway?

I am very sure I want a hysterectomy, there are no doubts. I have very painful PCOS that isn't responding to treatment and I have been in constant pain for 2 years. I am not very trusting of my GP as far as GYN issues are concerned and would prefer to be treated by my GYN. The issues I saw my GP for were unrelated to what I see my GYN for and they date back to before I decided to have the hysterectomy. Any issue that the GP brought up that was GYN related was left for me to take up with my GYN. My GP is not prescribing any medication for this, he referred me back to my GYN for follow-up care. Also, my GYN records are forwarded to my medical file and any and all medications and treatments (after the fact) from any specialist are included. I am not starting any HRT before the hyst either. Sorry if my post was a little unclear.
