3 weeks post op/climara patch

i have been on the climara patch .1 since my surgery 3 weeks ago, i was doing pretty well, until 2 days ago, i don't have hot flashes or night sweats like i did the first few days, but mentally i am not myself, i can't concentrate on anything for too long, it feels like i am having a panic attack, before the tah, i was very focused on my work, now i don't really care about it or anything else, nothing makes me happy......it feels like i am empty inside, and this is nothing like me. i called the dr.office today, and i am waiting for a call back. should i try another patch like the vivelle patch?, i just don't know if this would make a difference or not.
does anyone else feel like this?
any advise would be truly appreciated.
thank you

Hi alex

You are still so very early post-op, and your body is still trying to settle in from the impact of this surgery. This surgery does impact us on 3 levels, physically, emotionally, and hormonally. It's really important to not push yourself right now or expect too much too soon.

Your body is likely still using up it's own stores of estrogen at this time as well---so is in a bit of hormonal flux--which is quite common for early Princesses. Do discuss your concerns with your doctor, however, and let us know what he/she suggests.

In the meantime---continue to Pamper the Princess.

thank you for answering to my post-i spoke with my dr's nurse, he is on vacation until monday, she has been his nurse for a long time and said to me that a lot of the women that go thru this procedure have to take some type of anti depressant for a little while, she doesn't believe it is hormone related, because i am not having any other symptoms, like hot flashes or night sweats. she did say that my body has gone thru a major change and it could affect me emotionally this way. she asked to call my family doctor and have him prescribe something for me and she also gave me the name and number for a psychiatrist (i am sure i did not spell that right). anyway, there might be a light at the end of this tunnel if the anti depressants work. wish me luck!!!, i have a feeling i am going to need it.

Hi again alex

Glad you at least were able to discuss your symptoms with the nurse. It's not uncommon for some of us to take an anti-depressant along with our HRT. I take a low dose of Paxil, along with my Vivelle Dot, and do quite well on that regimen.

Also, there is another wonderful forum on this site called Aching Hearts if you feel you are needing extra support dealing with the emotional aspects (sadness, loss, grief), which are common for so many after this surgery. It's a warm, caring and supportive place to visit.
