itching and extreme fatigue post ovary removal

I had a hysterctomy 3 years ago and recently had to have both of my ovarys removed (8 weeks apart) after I had a small tumour which showed borderline changes in the first one. The good news is that the second ovary and all of the biopsies were fine so I am considered 'cured' the not such good news is that 4 weeks later I am expereincing extreme fatigue, horrible muscle pain and an extremely itchy scalp!! I have been taking low dose oestrogen for nearly 2 weeks now but haven't noticed any differnce at all to my symptoms, do I need to give it more time or go back to the Dr's. I thought I would have a new lease of life when I got the all clear from my second surgery but feel like a very old miserable and crotchety old woman ( I am 47)
Any thoughts or expereinces very gratefully recieved

You may be on too low of a dose, but the body does take time to absorb it, and get used to getting hormones this way. I would think by 2 weeks you would see some positive signs that it is helping and more fully by 4 weeks.

If your hrt is helping your hot flashes, then that is a good indication your are getting the estrogen.
