Surgical menopause symptoms

Hi Sisters

I am 5 months post op and I am having a tough time dealing with having had to have the hysterectomy....it seems to be on my mind all the time. I am grateful that I had it only because of the thought of what could have been, but I am just having a hard time getting out of bed and get my butt going. My thoughts go off....Ive talked to my counselor and she says it is all part of the grieving process.....just looking to vent and see if anyone else out there is having a tough time


TAH/BSO stage1 ovarian, stage 1 cervical/grade 3 invasive tumor
lymphnodes and margins clean, no post op treatment needed

Donna, I understand how you feel. It's in the back of my head all the time and also having other issues since surgery sure doesn't help. You are not alone. I think there are a lot of us who thinking about it and it's probable causing some of my anxiety. I'm glad we have this site to come to and share our thoughts. It really help to have everyone here.

Surgical menopause symptoms

For a long time I was mad at my body. I felt like it had turned on me. It sounds stupid, but that's how I felt. Especially since I never knew all these years that anything was wrong until only 4 months before the surgery. I thought everything was fine with my body. Then one month my period got so heavy and I bled for 2 weeks and I knew something was wrong. I ended up severly anemic. When I went to the dr. we discussed different options. Unfortunately the other options had poor success rates. The dr. told me that I could keep going like I was, but that one month my period would come and not stop and I could bleed to death. That scared me. But I was still very mad that I needed the surgery. Not in my wildest dreams did I ever think I'd end up with a hysterectomy at age 44. I still get mad sometimes, so I know how you feel. I had fibroids and endo. The only thing that it did cure was my severe PMS. It was pretty bad. I always felt miserable about a week before my period would come. I just wish there had been other treatment options. I felt like the choice was taken away from me.

Have you tried estroven (sp?). My friend who couldn't have HRT told me about it...I started taking the regular strength and it helped with my symptoms. Might be worth a try. You can find it at Walmart or Sams club (I am sure lots of other places too!).

good luck!

I feel mad at my body too like it turned on me......I didnt find out anything was wrong until two weeks before my surgery, my mass was found on a routine visit.....I am glad I don't get my period anymore thats about the only upside, and the horrible cramps.....but the thought of my body being invaded with cancer is always in the front of my mind...im workingon it!!!!!

Lack of control

I think what bothers me most is the lack of control I now have over my body. With surgical menopause I find I am challneged without notice to deal with hot flashes and mood swings. I've just started .3mg of premarin so maybe in a few weeks I'll finally get a little more control.

Good Luck girls and remember to love yourselves no matter what hand we are dealt!

Hugs to all

I think what you described about lack of control is exactly how I am feeling. I had no choice in the matter. There were other treatment options that the dr. gave me, but I wasn't a good candidate for any of them. And now I can't take HRT and haven't taken anything since the surgery in April and now my body controls me, I don't control it. See, I've had panic attacks for a long time, and they ruled how my body felt as well. I do take medication now for it and things are better, but with the surgerical hysterectomy it was like starting from scratch. I had to deal with what my body threw my way, whether I liked it or not. And with no HRT, sometimes I lose my temper. Not always, it's not as bad now. It's that lack of control over my own body that upsets me more than anything. I'm past 6 months post op and things do get better without HRT, but it's a long and slow process. Much slower than if I were on HRT. So I just take it one day at a time. Most nights I'm so hot I have to go to bed with no shirt on and the heat off. I can't stand the heat.
