Hormone Question Pre-Op...

Hi Everyone,

My surgery date is a week from today and I was pretty set on asking my doctor how he felt about Evista to help balance out my hormones since they help ward off osteoporosis and heart disease while not stimulating the breast tissue.

Then I read something on here that said that they can cause endometrial cancer. Now my question is this, not to sound too ignorant, if they are taking all of that out (full TAH with BSO) would I still need to be concerned about that?

I am trying to get educated before he just tells me what I am going to take with me having no input.

Thanks!

Lesley

I'm not sure I understand... what did you read would cause endometrial cancer?

Taking unopposed estrogen does raise one's likelihood of endometrial cancer if one still has a uterus; taking Tamoxifen raises it even more. But I've not heard anything about any risk of endometrial cancer if you no longer have a uterus, because the endometrium was in the uterus... unless... it is true that unopposed estrogen can stimulate re-growth of endometriosis even after the uterus is removed. Could that be what you had read?
