Is it normal to be ready to kill your doctor????

Ok that might be kinda harsh, but I am feeling very frustrated. I went to this guy 2 years ago for help for ain in my side, 24 hours later I am laying in a hospital bed clutching to life. I had severe bleeding and 2 blood transfusions. I had a pancake of blood im my stomache. They blamed it on a rare blood disorder that they didnt know i had. I never had a problem before. Anyways, they only removed one ovary and the uterus. I had to stay in the hospital 6 days and bleeding forever. Having special doc visits to be cauterized and such. Well 9mths later, guess what adhesions and well endo on all of my organs. So 2nd ovary bye-bye..... not such a bad surgery. But now, I am gaining weight like a sponge. My feet and legs aways hurt. No energy, I fight it but hard to get going. My mood, varies. Depreseed. Went back to see doc and he says all is ok just need to go on a special diet and some more drugs. Stop already. I just need someone to help find me a real doc that can listen and specializes in this stuff. I need my hormones figured out. I cn go 2 weeks before I realize I have not taken them. No hot flashes, nothing. I need some help here, before I end up in the looney bend. My kids are suffering. Any suggestions??? you guys are always good with stuff like this. Thanks...A

Hormone issues


I have moved your thread over here to our Hormone Central forum where there are many ladies dealing with hormone issues who should be able to drop by with support and information!

I am sorry you are frustrated with your doctor right now. Have you considered talking to your GP about what you are experiencing right now? Some women actually have their hormones and HRT managed by their GP rather than their surgeon or a GYN. If you would rather a GYN help with your hormones, your GP could refer you to one.

When starting on the road to hormone balance, it is a good idea to keep a journal of your symptoms. It can take time and trial and error to find the right balance for each woman. And what works for one may not work another!

Since you have endometriosis you will also need a physician who is knowledgeable regarding endo. Any endo that was missed during surgery could cause endo recurrence if you use estrogen replacement. You may need to also use some progesterone. You and your doctor will need to weigh the pros and cons for you to determine how to proceed. Some ladies with endo decide to go the alternative route, avoiding HRT. Others find that surgical menopause issues are too drastic and they need to use HRT. An endometriosis specialist or an endocrinologist who treats endo patients may be able to help you.

Don't give up! Talk to your doctor or find a doctor who will listen. You might want to see if there are any doctors in your area listed at www.suggestadoctor.com. You can also check www.iacprx.org for a compounding pharmacist who might be able to recommend a knowledgeable physician for you, even if you do not choose to go the compounding hormones route.

Sending lots of s and best wishes your way!
