((((mei))))) Yes, I've been here a while

I don't remember seeing nausea and hormones as a link before but, then again, these days the is very, very deep!!! Have you tried posting about your symptoms in the Hormone Jungle? The janes may have some valuable input for you.

BTW, hormones having that effect on you is not all that remote of a notion. After all nausea is one of the main symptoms of early pregnancy and it is all due to the changing hormones!!! And I remember that there were times when, at certain phases of my cycle, nausea would be a likely companion!!

Thats it .

I never complained because I thought it was normal to have nausea .

Thenit got worse this year .

It would typically start mid cycle and end when my period finished . I would then have one good week and then it would start all over

how much more do people want me to suffer ???

what does this conversation sound like to you ?

me : oh its on next week tuesday if all goes well
X : blah blah I feel you didnt really give the meno jabs a chance to work
me : it was meant to last three months that jab but two months into the time the vomitting started in earnest again

X : sleep ? 5 hours of sleep cant be good for you . I know its hard to break out of a rut
me : what can I do I get hungry at odd hours because my meal size per sitting has shrunk so I often have to snack at about 9 and stay up until it goes in or get heartburn if I sleep at ten
X : gotta break out of the rut somehow ..
me : at least I get to sleep in now unlike before at MILs .

X : I hope the surgery works but I wonder about not giving the jab a chance to work .
me : well I have taken this jab three times for various purposes and each time it is given its about 700SGD . If its working less now hmmm .. what people often dont realise is that I have a 20 over year history so its not a rash lsst minute decision. 2 scopes , one hysterectomy , 3 courses of hormone treatment ( the last one not working so well ) Im ready for a fix

((((mei))))) One thing that I've learned, over the years, is that most people... including myself.... feel very overwhelmed when something can't be easily fixed. That's when these comments will come up. I don't know how many times I've either said or thought: why doesn't X just pull himself/herself together and get over this? Retroactively, I know that I'm a "fixer" by nature. So, if I can't fix it, I figure that somebody else can. Doesn't mean I don't care or am unfeeling, just means that I really wish for that person to be "over it" and feeling better.

Does that make any sense?

In the end, I know that saying these things doesn't help the person who's sufferring. And, as I was dealing with the hyst and arthritic pain, I've also learned to counter these by doing just what you're doing: letting people know that you have tried everything, have done the research and are making an informed decision.

And, ((((mei)))), I really don't think that anyone wants you to suffer more

((((mei)))) The best place to find information about going through surgical menopause without the benefit of HRT is by visiting the No Hormone Desert Oasis message board. Here's the link to that forum:

BTW, one thing to be aware of is that some of those natural options contain natural estrogens (that's why they're effictive to manage the symptoms) and might still be contraindicated if too much estrogen is your problem.

Sending tons of s your way... hang in there. One way to pass the time would be to use the time between now and Tuesday to do the research that will help you deal with this change.

You have been through so much. I feel so bad for you and hope this next surgery helps. I had my surgery in Feb. and did not keep my ovaries, I can't take HRT and the DR told me if things got too bad I could try black cohosh, I haven't needed it. I drink Soy milk everyday. If I go a few days without it the sweats seem to increase. I hope this helps, it is worth a try. I drink 8th Continent Low Fat Vanilla. Good luck to you. You are in my prayers.
