Hi Melanie

I am absolutely sorry to hear you are still going through/putting up with this after 2 years. You seem to hear that it will get better and alot of ladies feel better, get their energy back after 6 months, sometimes a year then its ok... well I never felt quite right afterwards. I was not put on hormones even though my levels were low. They were borderline. I was exhausted all the time. I hit my lowest point in life when my stored estrogen finally ran out after 3 years. Then I hit rock bottom. I cried everyday. I had back pain everyday. I lost my sleep totally and got very very depressed. I was put on anti dep and anti anx. pills and was told I was nervous. Well I knew it was something else. I kept persisting with the hormone issues with 5 doctors and only 1 agreed it was hormonal but he went about things all wrong. I put myself on nat. prog. cream and it helped alot of the symptoms. I then just recently added 17 Beta estradiol gel, and also using a portion of a transdermal estrogen patch and am doing better. sometimes the estrogen gets to be a little too much but I will work it out.( I self prescribed-- not highly recommended to do unless you are sure of your health issues. After 5 doctors, I was. I think some women's bodies are different also, each has a diff. chemical makeup. I know some ladies who had a hyst, kept ovaries and were able to continue to work full time and didn't have menopausal symtoms. I just don't freakin get that. I reallly dont. That hyster really through me the loop. It nearly made me very sick. I am better now and don't take meds anymore. I took myself off those and the hormones are the answer but I am still tweaking them. Stress affects them. I noticed after the hyst I can't handle alot of physical or mental stress. Thats new for me. Its not my imagination either.I think my hyst affected me adversely. I hope it gets better yet , its been hard to learn to "manually tune" your own hormones when your body used to do it for you ! If you want to talk further, PM me.Are you on hormones now? If not maybe you should consider giving your dr. a call. Best wishes.

Yes Melanie,
I can say that I have had a fatigue that has never gone away since I have had my hyst. Its like my adrenals can't cope with making all the sex hormones as well as giving me normal energy to cope with everyday life. I have had my thryoid checked and its normal. my blood sugar is normal. everything but hormone levels. I have maybe one to two days a week that I feel pretty good and do alot then the rest of the days I'm like dragging. Its up and down like that all the time. Estrogen helps the energy a little bit. Its just been something since my hyst. Its gotten a little better yes but I still have a ways to go yet compared to some other ladies.

Badger - actually symptoms didn't begin for me until it had been almost a year - then my reserves were depleted and what I had been placed on was not enough. So the journey through the jungle began. And it is a changing scenario. Most of the time, I'm pretty balanced. But it seems like all it takes is a cold or stress or a change in my routine to set off another round of symptoms. So to answer your question . . . yes.

Are you on any hormone replacement therapy? Have you tried any natural remedies? Do you a see doctor regularly and what does he tell you?
