testing for bone density and estrogen levels???

I am having a TAH/BSO on Oct. 26th. Those of you who have had yours done already, did your doctors test your estrogen level BEFORE surgery as a baseline to see where to start you on HRT? Did any of you have a baseline bone density test prior to surgery? Are these things I need to consider before my surgery?

Right now I am gearing up for my LAST---YEAH, LAST---period of my life, so my fsh levels aren't exactly at the most comfortable level, but at least it would be a baseline to work from.

Thanks for the info.

Jan - I had tah/bso 3/22 and no - I didn't have either one done. I do know that my hormones had been "unbalanced" for several years so doing any type of a test prior to surgery would not have given them a "good" baseline for me personally.

I discussed HRT with my gyn. prior to surgery and she put a patch on me the day after surgery and I opted to take daily estrogen pill when I got home...haven't had any problems so far
