On estrogen despite endo

Hi, I'm new to this forum and really confused. I'm 39, had a TAH BSO less than 3 weeks ago and am currently on the vivelle-dot--.1mg. When I awoke from surgery I had a Climara patch on me. My dr. switched me to the vivelle-dot at one week check-up. My question is are there any others with endo who went on estrogen right away? I've read many threads where those with endo do not go on estrogen right away or go on combo estrogen and progesterone.

On estrogen despite endo

Hi, I'm curious about this question too. My doctor put me on estrogen (Estrace pills) right after surgery, and I had severe Endo. She never mentioned there could be a problem later with Endo. I plan to ask at my post op appt. next week.

estrogen after endo

My doctor also put me on estrogen about 2 weeks after surgery. I was having such severe mood swings something had to be done. My problem is that while Im not having any hot flashes anymore all of the other symptoms are still there, Im not getting much help anywhere. Glad to know Im not alone
I am also going to ask my doctor about starting on estrogen so soon, Im sure you like me do NOT want the endo back!! And yes it is great to be pain free!!! WHOOOHOOOO

On estrogen despite endo

I'll be 7 weeks post-op Tuesday (TAH/BSO/cervix removed also). I, too, had really bad endo. But I'm not on any hormones at all, except for Premarin vaginal cream (I had endo so bad that I had to have some vaginal reconstruction). I had my 5 week checkup and the only thing that I'm taking on my own is the Remifemin because of an occasional sleepless night and "red ears". I have to see my doctor again in 6 months and then he'll send me back to the regular gyn. (I was sent to an oncologist for this - no cancer, though). He told me if I decided that I might need hormones, to call him. I'm losing a little bit of hair, but I've been on thyroid meds for 7 years with the exception that my level was high enough before the surgery that my PCP told me I didn't need to take it. But since the surgery I should probably have my thyroid level checked again and probably start back on it. I feel really good - lost close to 16 lbs and maybe a little "snappy" at times, but not ballistic like I was before the surgery.

On estrogen despite endo

My doctor put my on premarin 0.625 after my 6 week post op appt cue to insominia, hot flashes, and some teariness.

Insominia is still a problem so I'm going to see my GP in case it's not hyst related. I've always had sleep problems and suffer from night terrors.

I have no complaints about the premarin so far. I'm going to monitor my conditin in case endo pain returns.

On estrogen despite endo

Hi, I had endo and adeno and I was put on Estrace 2 mg. immediately after surgery. My Dr. said it wouldn't be a problem. Just my experience. Good Luck!
