Well, I got my hormone test results back today. I had posted last week about my dr. visit but didn't get any replies, maybe I came across as being too angry. I'm not normally an angry person, it's just that it really bugs me how dismissive this dr can be when things are so very real to me. He had told me that these horrible emotions and mood swings I'm having can't possibly be from hormones, my ovaries are fine. So, now today I get a phone call saying that my hormone levels are not consistant with menopause. I wasn't thinking I was going through menopause, just that maybe they're flucuating from the surgery still. I'm not sure what to think anymore, maybe my dr is right, maybe I do need to talk to someone(a professional). Maybe I'm going through depression or some kind of breakdown, just too much has happened in a short period of time. I was so hoping it was the hormone levels. I should have went to my primary dr, he is so much more understanding. Well, I will continue to do what gets me through each day: pray. Take care!

Wendy, maybe you are perimenopausal I was when I was about 40 it's just something I had to deal with. My doctor, the same one that did my surgery told me I was. I had hot flashed and night sweats all the time. I'm doing better now since surgery and hormones.

I don't really have any answers for you. I have no idea if my ovaries are working or not yet? Sorry you are having a tuff time

Talking to someone can't hurt. Your PC dr. may check some other things, thyroid <sp? etc. In my opinion it is good to rule out medical. Stress does put a strain on us. You're further out from your surgery then me, however, from what I have read. Some women don't feel themselves for longer and it is 'normal for this type of Major surgery.

Your body has been through a lot!

I'm not a dr. I can offer you lots of hugs though

Wendy, I do believe CoffeeBrown hit the nail right on the head!! I have been having "perimenopausal" symptoms since I was about 38. I had my levels checked only to find out they are "normal". Testosterone is low, though. I don't know what "normal" is for everyone else, but I do know my hormone levels are NOT normal for me!! You are not crazy, Wendy. We know what goes on with our own bodies! You can always do some research on the computer. Many times I have been able to go to my Dr. with info., just to get him thinking in the right direction!! Good luck to you!!

I think your doctor needs to be more sensitive to your needs. And I have to tell you (as a therapist) if you came to my office I'd recommend getting hormone levels first. As someone else mentioned, thyroid problems can also mess with your moods. I'd vote for the perimenopause thing though. What difference does it make if you still have your ovaries? One of the women in my office has been on a hormone patch since the birth of her last child.

Thanks for your replies, you don't know what it means to have people that understand and are sympathetic. I feel so alone sometimes. I'm very scared of what's happening to me. Physically I feel so much better, except for the discomfort in my right side. It's just that I'm a wreck emotionally, and I've never been like this before. I've been depressed before over things, but this is something much worse. I'm very clingy towards dh, crying a lot, feeling disconnected, don't want to do anything, getting angry easily. I was just hoping the dr would say, wow, your hormone levels are off the charts, no wonder you feel this way. Then at least I'd know the reason. A friend of mine who's been through this thinks I'm sufferering from depression. Whatever it is, I've had enough. All I can do each day is to cling to God, He's the only one who manages to get me through each day. Thanks again for your replies.
