Those of you that had your ovaries removed, are you going on HRT?

Hi I am 13 weeks post op. I am on Enjuvia 0.625 and not doing well. I didnt put all the side effects down to the pill. I have been suffering terribly with very swollen belly (look about 7 months pregnant) chest pains, light head, very low blood pressure, sickness, panic attacks, all this since the full hysterectomy. I went to my primary doctor on friday, and she did an ECG and found my heart was having problems, so today I am going to have an Ecocardiogram. I am scheduled for a abdominal CT scan this week also.

I checked the side effects this weekend of the Hrt that I am on, and I seem to have almost all of them . (I dont read side effects normally, as I think if you read them you get them)

I need to be on HRT as I am 42 and cant deal with the hot sweats mood swing etc.

I have spoken with a few people and they recommend the Patch Estrovern as it seems to be the longest one around.

Can anyone give me any advice. My gyny doctor is not easy no time, didnt even ask to see me to check me over re the Hrt.

Thankyou kind regards to you all Lorraine

I'm 51 and was experiencing hot flashes, etc before my hyst. Dr put an estrogen patch on me during surgery. He sent me home with a prescription for the generic patch (estrodril). Unfortunately I had a reaction to the adhesive so he swithed me to Enjuvia 0.625. I'm only on day 2 of the pill form. So far no reactions.

As for HRT, it has eliminated my hot flashes, moodiness and depression. So for me it is worth it. Dr said he will keep me on it for about 5 years and then slowly wean me off of it.

Hi good luck with the Enjuvia I hope you find it works for you. I was feeling fantastic on it for about 3 months and now I feeling terrible.

I am off to hospital today and will try the patch see how that goes.

I am going on 3 months post op and even though dr suggested I start on HRT, I didn't want to, I am worried about the side effects. The only thing I am experiencing that I know of are the hot flashes and some memory loss..I can't seem to focus as much as I used to and find myself not "with it" more than usual. I was thinking this morning should I take them and see what happens? Is it too late? How long does the menapause last? Im not really doing very well physically either, see my post about huge belly and tenderness/pain still. Oh and one more thing, I was having trouble sleeping and called my Dr and she put me on Ambien.

Hi,

I am 44 and decided not to do HRT - but I am also BRCA 2 positive which puts me at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer (which is also why I had my hysterectomy and ovaries removed).

My doctor was fine with me doing HRT for the short term if I had symptoms. But so far, I haven't had any symptoms except headaches and they have started to decline and my doctor tells me they will likely go away.

It's going on 5 weeks since my surgery and I feel great.

Good luck to you in making your decision - everyone is so individual that I'm sure there is no one right decision!

A sincere thanks to all that answered.

I saw my doctor today. He said that less than half of his patients go on HRT and usually do so as symptoms present. He prefers to wait until 6 weeks post op to avoid the risk of a blood clot.

He also said that it only took a few days for the hormones to start to leave my body.

Other than that I am scheduled for a bone density test in 3 months and should take a calcium supplement.

Not ever planning on taking hormones as my mom died of pre-meno breast cancer, and I've already had 3 breast issues myself (luckily benign). Plus, I have an awful family history for blood clots - so I feel like I'd be crazy to try HRT.

I am suffering with nasty night sweats, but other than that, I feel normal. No mood swings, normal energy. Worst part is insomnia which I take Ambien if necessary.

Also started taking Os-Cal and plan to resume daily walks as soon as I feel healed. Still sore/bloated/crampy at 7 weeks post-op.

hi, My doc said no hormones, due to uterine cancer. i've had some hot flushes probably 3 times since surgery. It wasn't too bad and didn't last too long. I felt hot, nauseated and tired.

I had thought that having a hyst meant that one had to take hormones, but I was wrong.

I am 32 yrs old. I didn't have the 1st thought about not going on HRT, only because of me being so young.
I had a TVH. I am into my 4th week post op. My Dr put me on a Climara (Estradiol; generic name) patch , the morning after my surgery, and I have done great.
No depression, no headaches, only a couple night sweats. I have had the munchies pretty bad. Not sure if it is because of the patch, or because of my boredom! lol.

Hi,

I am 31 years old and just had LAVH/BSO on December 4th.

I am currently not taking HRT and my doctor and I have agreed to wait and see what happens. So far I am feeling great, and just hope it continues.

Good luck in your decision.
