had breast cancer now have to have a hyster

not me ladies my question is in reference to my mom. she had breast cancer 5 years ago. she had a breast removed and now she her fibroid tumors are acting up and she has been bleeding for 6 weeks now. the doctors reccommended a fibroid tumor removal only but when they looked further they want to take out everything. my concern is she cant have estrogen to control her hormones throught this procedure cause of the breast cancer and the chemo she had. what is she going to do? she has been a totally different person since she had the cancer. she only lives for herself and has no concerns for her family now she is going to go through this and loose her mind! she fights with us all the time and everything has to go her way or else she yells at us to get out leave i hate you its terrible she is not the mom i had 5 years ago at all.....can this procedure bring her cancer back again?
any answers will help thankyou

Your poor mom!! Please know that when she gets evil like that, she is not happy with herself either! I am sure that there are times that she sits alone and cries because she feels herself being a person that she has no idea as to who it is! Try to be patient and see if she would like to talk to you about it. Does she have any friends to confide in? There are a few ladies who visit the boards who have had breast cancer. I am sure that as soon as they see your post, they will respond too. I want to tell you that I will keep you and your mom in my thoughts! I wish you both the very best!! It is so sweet of you to want to reach out for you mom, even if she has not been the sweetest person around lately. Take care!!

had breast cancer now have to have a hyster

Hi, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer Mar 97 (almost 4 years. I had to have a total hysterectomy Oct 99. I to was bleeding, and because of my cancer being so hormone positive that was not good. So thats why the hysto. I cannot take any hormones. I was doing fine for a little while, hot flashes and such, see chemo put me into menopause then the surgery just put me deeper. Well anyway, things started to get really ugly. I could not sleep, eat, hot flashes, could not see, it was so wierd. My oncologist prescripted an antidepressant, they have found that it helps women like your mother and I. It boostes the serotonin to the brain, which helps. And no I can not explain serotonin, etc. All I know it (Effexor XR) works for me.
Good Luck
