Kept both ovaries, EXTREMELY moody...

Well I am off to the Dr. in the morning to get off this crazy train!!! I refuse to take any HRT because I believe one cancer diagnosis is enough thank you!!! I am hoping for some insight on what I can do to help relieve this moodiness. I will report back tomorrow and fill everyone in. I seem to have been on this train the longest of everyone here!!

Peggy,
My dh "thinks" he's a comic too... sometimes it makes me laugh, but sometimes it's what irritates me LOL. I always tease him and ask him why he thinks he's funny and when he tells me it's because I told him he was... I tell him that I don't ever remember saying that... and that goes on and on, which usually gets a luagh out of both of us. The silly things we do to keep our sanity!

Kept both ovaries, EXTREMELY moody...

Hello Desiree,Kris and all you other sisters out there going through all this sadness and moodiness. Hope everyone is having a little better day. Well I have decided to try and face the world today, my DH is going to take the kids and I to the store(i know exciting huh), and to get something to eat this evening. I know its sounds crazy but I am nervous about being around people, I have only been out once post op other than the drs. and was glad to get home. I would love my ovaries to come back from wherever they are on vacation or to wake up I used to love to be out and about. On another note I have my 4wk post op next week does anyone have a good list of questions for the dr. Thanks for all the support from all the wonderful sister out there!! I guess if we get 6-8 weeks off, are ovaries think they are untitled to the same LOL. Wishing for smiles for everyone today

It seems like I saw a list of questions in the post-op checkpoints - so look there. I know for me - I had an exam at 2 weeks and then released 'come back in 6 months,' so I never had the opportunity to ask any of them. I got the "listen to your body, gradually increase activity, etc until I am back to normal, etc." He did say we could try intercourse at 4 weeks, but if it hurts wait another week. Gee, thanks Doc -- I still haven't tried it. DH is ok with waiting until I am totally healed - so I have big plans for our vacation in a couple weeks!!

As for my ovaries - the right one never took a break, never went on even a mini-vacation. About 1-1.5 weeks after surgery - it let me know it was still "up and running at full speed." When I mentioned that to the dr at the 2 wk appt - he just smiled and said something about 'yes, they'll be working as usual.' I never feel the left one, but I swear the right one has it's calendar messed up - about every 2 weeks now - it lets me know it is still there. I also have been bleeding since about 2.5 weeks enough that I need a pad, instead of a panty liner. As for the other PMS symptoms I used to have - they are "hit or miss" - one time I'll have night sweats and breast tenderness, another it might be sweats and swollen ankles, . . . you get the idea.

Since I have been extremely tired, light-headed, nauseous, etc. this go-round - I called the gyn and have an appt tomorrow AM. When I called to make the appt and explained what was going on - I was told to take liquid iron.
Oh yeah, I've also had a headache since Sat. at 4 AM (ranging from migraine explosion to dull and annoying), but haven't gotten rid of it for more than an hour. I felt so crappy this morning - I almost cried when my DgD and daycare kids kept asking for more food at breakfast (they'd already had 2nds on everything) and that is definitely NOT like me. Fortunately my DD got back from an errand a little later (she has been helping run my daycare since my surgery) - but I still want to go climb back in my bed.

I'll post after I have been in (and I already decided that if he doesn't have any remedies I like or that work - I am going to my primary.)

Sorry this is so long, but thanks for listening.
Just sign me "tired and tired of it!"

Debbie

Kept both ovaries, EXTREMELY moody...

Well after 8 weeks of my ovaries being on vacation I decided to go to the Dr. She put me on the lowest dosage estrogen patch for four weeks. She said that they found not only do your ovaries take a vacation, but the estrogen receptors do also. She said it was time for me to stop suffering and use the patch. You've got to love a Dr. that gives it to you straight up!!! Hopefully this will work and I can get back to my normal self. She also gave me samples of Lunestra if I was still having problems sleeping. I will keep everyone posted if the low dose patch wakes everything up!!! Take Care!!!

Well I did venture out to the store with my DH and faced the world. Have to admit still feel like I am not part of it. Again could not wait to get home. I wasnt gone long and at one point looked at myDH and said we need to go. My insides felt like they were falling out and I was exhausted. So to those of you who are even earlier post op and driving 8hrs and all over, god bless you. I wouldnt of wanted to try to drive home. (call me a whimp-something I am usually far from!!) Anyhow being out didnt help improve my mood, just made me realize my limitations and how I still want to hide. Oh well one day at a time. I also have aquestion even though I know this is the wrong thread sorry. My incision is red and oozing in a few spots. Can I just put neosporin on it and let it go? Hey lala woman I bet you could have taken that guy no matter where your hormones are at right now. Thanks for the laughs Love the "non-whimpy smiley guy! I can only imagine what that guy went home and told his family and friends!LOL

Laughter is the best medicine

Dear Sisters,
My moods have kind of reflected my posts so today I wanted to post something positive. I just wanted to thank all of you sisters because this site has helped me tremedously. I have found that I am not alone in this. But the support and all of you finding the ability to throw some jokes out there has been a bright spot in my days. I truley believe in laughter and absolutely love humor. I guess thats why the depression hit hard because I have always been the type to use humor to get over everything. So thanks again for sharing your stories and maybe if we all share are humor we will get there one day at a time. Maybe if we laugh hard enough it will wake up our ovaries. I think we should all write a conclusion to what the story was that the man at Lalas lake went home and told everyone.
"Your never going to believe this, there was this woman at the lake, and I only made this small talk comment AND....


We all need laughter even if it only for a little while.
Besides happy tears are better than the sad tears we all know!
