Disorders/sydromes/diseases from hyst? ( Trish?)

Pardon me ladies while I get out my pillow and bop Eileen on the head with it!!

You couldn't ask me something easy like the square root of Pi? or why is there air?

I don't like answering things off the top of my head. I like to doublecheck myself. So, this will take some time because I haven't checked the medical literature in a while, so I'll see what I can surprise out of it (sometimes it takes backdoors into the data to get the answers to pop out).

What I will say off the top of my head is that I'm thinking that there are three aspects to your question--

1. major surgery (risks of anesthesia, intubation, blood loss, trauma, etc.)

2. hysterectomy--cutting the pelvic ligaments and arteries and removing a whole organ system

3. surgical menopause in all its forms

And in some ways I think hystersisters are writing the book.

Did you have a specific question or just curious about the big picture?

Don't forget the auto-immune and prostaglandin changes!

I've seen some info on that as well, so if I find anything I'll bring it here.

Unfortunately, a lot of research is yet to be done on things like why so many of us have high blood pressure following the hyst (I suspect it has to do with prostaglandin metabolism), etc. I keep hoping to find some research-minded GYN who is looking for a nice, large cohort of ladies who've had hysts to do a long-term study (similar to the Nurses' study) to answer just these sorts of questions. After all, with 5-600,000 of these done each year, that's a lot of us out there who "want to know"!

Should have known that Sheri had all the links So the question is, is that what you wanted, Eileen? Of course I was thinking of starting from scratch and searching the studies behind these articles because I'm a dope. I'll take my pillow and slink off.

Audrey, I bet you're right. For instance, the fact that evening primrose oil helps so many sisters. That's purely a prostaglandin issue, by-passing enzymes that have stopped doing their thing. I know that pge1 (the one that emerges from the right balance of epo, vitamin E and omega 3 fatty acids, is vasoactive, so you might be right that it's a cause of the mystery blood pressure problems. PGE1 is good for you but most of them kick butt like PGE3.

I have a distant memory of finding out, for instance, that endo produces its own prostaglandins and prolactin. Since endo is the uterine lining, I suppose that effect is gone when the uterus is--or is too high for women with uteri and endo.

I was hoping the answer to this question was NONE!

oh well, very informative and good information. I think I already had an idea that my hyster/BSO set me up for some illnesses. BOO HISS!

But grateful for the research. Perhaps there is much I can do for myself to protect my bones, my health and my sanity.

I'm with Audrey, where are the long-term studies of surgical menopausal patients?
