Hello MA Sisters, new to site

Hello all, new to site and 15 1/2 months post surgery, 4 Dr later and still trying to get back to anything that resembles ME. Not having great sucess. BHRT (started 5 months ago) still evolving and struggling with the side effects. Still, not alot of support from Dr, but would like to reach out to others who are in the same situation.

Currently struggling with, what I now know are very typical side effects that have evolved from 2.5 to 4 hrs sleep a night to wanting to sleep all of the time - too much progesterone?, body hair in abundance - started right after surgery, no one wanted to prescribe E and now the situation is not reversing itself, ZIP on the libido, although dose of T just upped - it may help. Latest blood levels have E very high, although not possible? since my dosage was cut in 1/2 from 1/4 tps 2mg cream to 1/8 tsp 2Xs daily?

I have just recently learned that dosing with iodine might help since no ovaries, where this would be concentrated. Anyone tried this? Is it safe?

Anyone found a good DR on the South Shore who prescribes BHRT? I would welcome suggestions - offline, of course.
