Hormone changes question?

Hi Amy.

You *may* experience some hormonal changes even if you keep your ovaries. Sometimes it takes awhile for them to start functioning normally again after this type of surgery. Depending on your medical issues and symptoms, some doctors will prescribe some HRT to get the estrogen level up while waiting for the ovaries to "wake up".

You may want to visit the Hormone Jungle page here as there are lots of great articles to peruse. It's very informative!

Good luck on your upcoming surgery and we look forward to seeing you on the Post-Op board with your new crown!

Hormone changes question?

Hi, Amy!
I became a princess on 7/19/04 - also kept ovaries.
Went through night sweats and a few crying bouts for about a week post-op. Doctor said due to ovaries settling down. Really was not a problem for me, once he told me what was happening. Got through it without any hormone "hits".

Now I just have slight PMS signs - couldn't figure out why I was "moody" - counted BACKWARDS and realized it would be time for my period. (HOW WEIRD but amazing!) I feel SO much better now than the 8 months prior to surgery.

Keep in touch with us!
Blessings to you!

Hormone changes question?

I am five weeks post op and happy to say I have had no 'hormonal' advercities as of yet. I did not keep my ovaries. Although, I have had some of the 'weeping' episodes where I have no idea why I am teary eyed. I understand that I probably have hormone 'reserves' in my body. To tell the truth I had more hot flashes and night sweats before surgery. I have read quite a lot of posts on this site and it seems to me that everyone is so very different. I was not very 'informed' about my surgery even though I am a nurse..... this site has given me more answers from people who 'KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE' and I will suggest it to anyone I come in contact with that is faced with a hysterectomy. Even if you don't get a 'straight answer' from a forum you will find out that you are NOT ALONE and somewhere on this site someone else has experienced the same thing at one time or another. To me that is reassuring.

I took kept my ovaries - but since surgery have had night sweats - strange. It helped to read that someone else had that and hopefully it will go away. No other symptoms of ovary shutdown anyway.
