IBS after hyst?

Hi sisters
Lucille, thanks for info, I find it so hard to believe what happened to you. In this day and age, the wonders of modern medicine etc. I hope you are feeling better now, you sure have worked hard for it
When I saw my consultant recently, I asked about hormone testing. He said he would do it! I was given the paperwork and told to book an appointment for the blood test, which I haven't done yet due to other problems. Also, I am thinking, right now I am reluctantly using sandrena gel (terrified of estrogen!) and progesterone cream, is it wise to stop this before doing the test? And, how will he know if my levels are correct? On the paperwork, the box ticked is the one to test for oestrogen. Nothing else! Strange - why just oestrogen? I get the feeling that this consultant isn't really all clued up to hormones etc, but wants the job anyway! My own doctors don't hold hormone tests as a necessity either. It's surely lack of knowledge! Don't they re-train as in any other occupation? Makes me wonder. I sure don't feel anything like the person I was before the tah/bso, and I know that's due to hormones. So - I mustn't have my balance yet, but then again, I wouldn't be needing the same amounts now?
Lucille, I may check out that book you mentioned. Thanks again s

IBS after hyst?

Kim, you are right..dr's are all different just as we are. Some are very knowledgable and others are not...I don't think that docs do harm purposefully. I do think some dr's don't communicate the facts to their patients as well as others. However, it is a well known documented fact that way too many hysts are done. Maybe part of that is the dr's and part of that has to do with how many women get so fed up with the problems they are having that they want a hyst. As for me, I really did not want one, but at the time felt it was my best option from everything my dr. told me and from what I researched. And when I say women want them I mean we get so fed up with bleeding, etc that we would just prefer to be done with it. I certainly think we all have alot to learn...dr's and patients alike.

Hi ((((((Kim))))
We must have posted together, I always take ages to get mine through as I am always called away before i finish!

I don't believe that the consultant who did my tah/bso tried everything with me before advising me the op was all that was left. I wasn't any the wiser anyway, so I do hold myself partly responsible. I gullibly believed that the only thing left was that op. I know now, from my own research and the help of this site, so wish I'd found you pre op, that there are loads of other options I could have tried.

I also believe that this operation will - in the future - not be so extensively - or as hastily, carried out. It simply can't be possible for the amount of ladies needing this operation every year to grow and to keep growing?

Perhaps a new thread should be started for this discussion, we really have strayed the topic a lil bit!

thank you dear sisters
