maybe I am wierd

Since surgery -- I am always cold. I have never been cold before-- I am used to wearing tank tops in the winter.

I had everything taken out -- and trying to do without supplements -- figured that if I would have went through it naturally -- I would tough it out -- so why not now? The DR agreed to see what or if there were any symptoms before adding anything -- and if there was some -- how bad they got before treating them

I have had a few times during the day -- where I feel that I just drank a hot cup of tea and get that body heat wave but it lasts maybe a minute-- but that would be as close to a hot flash that I can say that I have had.

As for the nights -- I sleep in a cold room -- sleep better that way -- my DH is a warm body -- and we have 2 80 pound dogs in the room so there is tons of body heat. I have had nights where i toss and turn -- maybe a little more than before surgery. but nothing to worry about going to the dr to see if I can get something

I do not feel that I am moody -- and DH would tell me about it if I was -- and if he didn't -- some of the firends would without hestitation.

So am I just using up what the body stored and I will get hit down the road --

how long does menopause last -- ( I know differant for everyone) but are we talking years or months.

Is it to early to really know

As i read through previous posts --I feel like I am out here alone as I am not having the symptoms that everyone else is having -- maybe I learned long ago -- to suck up pain and discomfort and get on with life -- that things are going on -- and I just keep plowing through it without knowing that something is wrong.

I have never been one to run to the dr -- i try to fix it myself -- and then only go when I can not think of what else to do.

I guess I wonder -- am I in for a big shock down the road -- or am I off on a less traveled path where life goes on with out much disturbance?

Thanks for listening

Surgical menopause symptoms

Dear Lisa...

You may very well be one of the fortunate ones who gets through this change in life with few complications. Wouldn't that be wonderful?!

For those who are already experiencing the menopause stuff.... who knows how long we'll have to persevere through the transition????

It's just "new turf" for all of us and only time will tell how long it's gonna take us to get to "greener pastures".....

Hope that time goes by quickly.....

Wishing you all the best!!

Surgical menopause symptoms

Everyone is different, but with me, now that I'm six months post op, things have started to settle down. That doesn't mean I don't still get the night sweats or the hot flashes. It just means I don't get them enough now to bother me, and I'm on no HRT. Nothing. My dr. told me things would settle down. I just hope it stays that way because lately I've been able to sleep pretty good, and when a hot flash comes, I try to think of something else. I was having regular periods at 44 when I had the surgery. Everything was taken out. Then later they told me I wasn't a candidate for HRT and I about freaked out, not knowing what was ahead of me. I did go through some tough times, but my moods are much better. I sleep better. I can finally concentrate and there is only a little brain fog left. Our bodies go through such a drastic change with this surgery, that it stirs up our emotions too. I still tend to get weepy more. I was never like that before. Otherwise I'd never have known I had an operation.
