Does your doctor think that you are in perimenopause or that ovaries are just taking a bit of a break due to surgery? Some ladies do find that their ovaries don't work quite right for a short while after their hyst because of the trauma from surgery. I ended up with some menopause symptoms for a few months after my hyst that eventually cleared up.

Are you taking the iron supplements? Sometimes there is a loss of blood during surgery that drops your hemoglobin a bit. If the drop is not too much, doctors often perfer to let your own body work to up your numbers. I had internal bleeding after my hyst that dropped my hemoglobin way down. When I became symptomatic and my numbers did not improve on their own I did have to have a blood transfusion. Had I not had so many symptoms that including blacking out, we would have let my own body work to bring my numbers ups.

If you have any questions or concerns, do talk to your doctor You may even be able to talk to your doctor's nurse for information.

I wish you the best and hope your numbers start looking better soon!
