too young to having a menopause

I really need your feedback before my surgery on November 12, 2003. I am very confused with big decision because I am only 31 years old.

April 1999, I had a surgery with removed the fibroid tumor.

October 2001, I had a surgery with removed the uterus and left ovary.

Good news, I am mom-to-be. My sister is pregnant for me called surrogate and the baby due is on April 16, 2004. (:

My OBGYN doctor found out that my right ovary is swallow about 8.5 cm and cyst about 4.5 cm. My doctor was not sure if its endometrosis. My doctor believed my ovary was swallowed from in-vitro (stimulate shots). My doctor gave me lupron shots 2 times. I have an appointment with sonogram on November 5th to see if the ovary is shrink. If no shrink, then will have a surgery on November 12th. I am very very confused because I want to remove my right ovary out because I have been sick for almost 6 years. My doctor said, "its not good idea to remove right ovary because I am only 31 years old..... too young to have a hot flash, dryness vagina, mood swing, and more." I can't take estrogen because of blood clots. If no blood clots then I can take estrogen. I need to know is there anyone who have a exactly same situation as mine. If yes, then I need to know how you doing without estrogen? OR is anyone have any better idea? I do not know if I should see different doctor but right now my obgyn doctor is my 4th opinion. She is wonderful doctor and tried to save my right ovary. I just learned that an estrogen will aeffect cancer. Is that true? Right now, I am taking soya lecthin for hot flash but little help. I got hot flash off and on because of lupron shots. I am so helpless!

I'll be very happy if you will feedback with me. I am worried because the baby will born in April. I do not want to get sick or miserable front of the baby.

Thank you,

I do not have answers to your ??? but I just had to say Congrats!!

Sounds as though you have been through A LOT!!!! I don't blame you for wanting to go ahead and remove the remaining ovary! I would like to suggest you read in the NO-HORMONE Forum here! You may find someone else at a "tender"age that was forced into surgical menopause w/out hormones!

I am two weeks,two days post-op and turned 33 in August. I did a lot of research into this pre-op because of the fear of not being able to take hormones and knowing I was having both ovaries removed. I was orig. told I would not be able to take hormones for 2-4 months due to endo., but when I went in for my 2 week check up was given the okay to start HRT. I was beginning to NEED it. (crying....some hot flashes...)

I know you are in a difficult situation and I want you to know I said a er for you today! I feel sure you will find some reassurance and answers to your ??? here, if not, I KNOW you will find tons of love and support here!!!

Again, congrats on the baby!!!

Oh a baby!! How wonderful!!!!!!!!!

I am older than you and I didn't have the same problems you are experiencing. I had a LAVH/BSO. Since I knew I wouldn't have my ovaries I still didn't want to do HRT. I didn't take anything for awhile and felt fine. (I would have an occasional mild hot flash and some insomnia, that's all) When I reached the 3 week post op mark I had some intense hot flashes. I decided to try NHRT. So now I take a herbal formula that contains no estrogen and that is working just fine for me. I sure hope you find something that will work for you.
I think it's just great that you will soon be a Mom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ing the best happens for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
