8 Months Post-Op-Still no menopause symptoms??

Hi ((Sisters)),

I am 8 months post op now, no hrt, no ovaries, and still not really having menopause symptoms. I have had like 2 hotflashes, and a few night sweats and that's it. Before surgery I had more night sweats and was hot all the time and mood swings. Now not having those things. I thought it was to be worse after meno? I am 45 and was going through peri-meno before surgery. I am also over weight and wonder if estrogen is being stored in my fat cells and that is why? I read that estrogen is stored in fat cells..but how long until mine are depleted? I am 100 lbs over weight

Anyone else not having meno symptoms?

I didn't have hot flashes until my doctor put me on Evista which causes hot "flushes". Other than that and not sleeping through the night, no menopause symptoms. We may be part of the fortunate group!

Hi, thanks for your response. I had an appointment with my gyne today and told her this, and she said there are women who don't get symptoms...so we are pretty fortunate

Have a great day and thanks!

Wow, yes you are lucky! I can't agree with the estrogen-stored-in-fat theory cause believe me, I have PLENTY of fat and I had symptoms starting within days of my surgery, literally 2-3 days after. I do, however, have a theory about PMS. I never got PMS and I've decided that because of that, this is like Montezuma's revenge, in other words, PMS majorly. You've heard of Menopause the Musical? In my case it's Menopause the Massacre. The emotional roller coaster is the worst. I'd rather have a million physical symptoms rather than the crying-jag-madder-then-heck-and-all-around emotional crap.

So basically, I'd say you are truly blessed! LOL Enjoy not having menopausal symptoms! Congrats ;-)

Hi Sister Angel! I wondered how you were doing. I'm glad to hear you aren't suffering with the symptoms.

After struggling with trying to find the right HRT for me and getting horrible groin pain in the process my dr. decided the pain was due to my endo coming back and took me off all HRT about 9 weeks ago. I've been suffering with lots of hot flashes for about the past 5-6 weeks but that is about my only symptom. In all honesty, I would rather deal with them than that horrible constant groin pain which has completely disappeared over the past couple of weeks, finally. I guess it was the endo.

I gained about 13 pound while playing around with HRT and 2 more since I've been off so with the new 15 pounds I'm probably about 40 pounds overweight. All I can say is I hope I don't have any more estrogen stored in my fat because I would hate to think the hot flashes are going to get worse. I suffer with anywhere from 10-20 of those buggers a day.

Hey Sister Angel and Jazzy Loo

I have not been on in a long while. My DD was very sick after my hysterectomy and I was not able to visit. I am glad to see you have zero symptoms sister. Sorry about your endo jazzy glad to hear it's better. I am off hormones again due to some blood clotting issues. Minor side effects hot flashes etc. I want to go back on if my hematologist will let me. I have to wait for a while to get that appointment the are so backed up. The thing that bugs me the most fine lines have popped out all over my face. I hope if I can go back on that will get better. My poor little ovary just could not keep up. I am not sure it is doing anything. I just wanted to say hello girls!

Hello SA and other sisters,
I am happy to hear that you too, SA, are not having symptoms. I am sitting ready for it all to begin. I am 4 weeks out as my info. says. I feel pretty good considering. I have only had a couple hot flashes just out of hospital, non since. My mood has been good. I think I agree with one of the other sisters, I suffered hot flashes and some mood swings prior to surgery. I actually was in more pain before the surgery. I just thank God that I am mending as well as I am. Keep me posted on your LACK OF SYMPTOMS. LOL Laura

Hi SisterAngel, it's so good to hear from you. It sounds like you are one of the lucky ones. I was so SURE that I would not go with HRT, that I would be able to tolerate having no hormones. Well, let me tell you.....that was a joke. I cried at the drop of a hat, had 20 or more hot flushes each night, couldn't sleep, it was horrible. Finally after about 4-5 weeks postsurgery, I gave in and went on the Vivelle dot (0.375) and then had to up it to (0.5). I lost ALL desire for sex and had practically no response, so then we added testosterone cream (2%). I'm almost normal now........well, my DH says that's not possible, but I'm doing so much better. But, it's such a fine line between too much and not enough of any of the hormones. I hope you continue to be symptom free. I wish I were so lucky.
