hormone question

I am only 4 days out from my surgery. What I have noticed is the agitated, angry feeling. I feel like I can blow at any little thing. I can't handle loud noises, be it voices, tv or computer. I have been taking estodial since the day after surgery. Can this be hormone related or is it just the surgery? I feel like such a grump. Can anyone advise me? I read the Horomone Jungle page but I didn't find anything specific answering this quesiton.

hormone question

I am sorry that you are experiencing agitated and angry feels. A hyst is a very emotional and major surgery. It can take some time to find the right hormone balance after a hyst and you can experience all types of extreme emotions during this time. Additionally, just having surgery can affect your feelings as well. I feel like a grump any time I am sick, don't even have to have surgery! My sugar drops and then I have the agitated, angry, irritabilty, can't stand noises, on and on! So, could be both!

As you are only 4 days post op, you may need a bit more time to see how you will react with your estodial, and to allow all meds from surgery to leave your system. Rest, drink your water, try to eat, and maybe some soothing music through ear phones to drown out the other household sounds might help a bit.

Best wishes to you!

hormone question

Hi Nancy!

You're really early in your recovery and it's going to take a while before things settle down, hormonally speaking. Your body is using up whatever hormones it still has that were made by your ovaries and you are also adjusting to a new source of estrogen. On top of all that you're recovering from major surgery and all the stress that goes along with the entire process. It's no wonder you don't feel your best!

I think it's a good idea to wait before considering making any changes. Keep a journal of your symptoms and mention them to your doctor. If things don't settle down over time, then you can work together to decide what hormone changes to make. It's not unusual to need some tweaking farther along.

I'm sending s and best wishes! I hope you start feeling better soon.

It will get better

I am 3 weeks post-op. I had the same problem from about day 4 until I started my hormone therapy. I can't believe how awful I was. One night the family ordered take out from a nice restaraunt. I ordered extra croutons on my salad. When I got the salad, there were NO croutons. I called the manager of the place and completely reamed him... Over croutons...

I then proceded to eat the salad while I cried hysterically.

I am a nice person. That wasn't me. It was the hormones......

I did call later and apologize. He must have thought I was a nut case! Anyway, I feel really good so far on my new hormone pills. Been taking them for 1 week. Hang in there because it will get better.

Love to you, Andra
