Unrelated surgery Messing up HRT?

Hello Ladies,
I have been on Hrt. Vivelle dot for almost three years.
I recently had hip surgery. I am three weeks post op. Since the surgery I have had hot flashes at night, been cranky and dry, dry skin.
I was thinking it was just a result of the surgery drugs and I was just going to wait it out, but it is getting long and I don't know what to do.
Anybody else had surgery mess up their HRT?
(They let me wear my patch during the surgery, nothing has changed with dosing)

Thanks For your input,

Hi Lemon!

I had surgery for stage III colon cancer almost three years after my TAH/BSO -- spending a full week hospitalized -- and I felt like such a mess afterwards I have concluded that the stress of major surgery can play havoc with almost any other system in the body.

If you don't start feeling like your former self very soon, my advice would be to see your medical provider to discuss what you are experiencing.

Re: Unrelated surgery Messing up HRT?

I had the same problem after tonsillectomy. Hate to say but it took a few months to get back on track.

I think it takes about 6 weeks to get the anesthesia effects out of your system. I too had the very dry skin, feeling out of sorts, just not myself.

I didn't alter my dose and was using Femring. I think though that the stress of surgery on your body is way more intense than we realize. Every system gets thrown into a spiral.

Hang in there though, it will improve. Just more of the patience, patience, etc.... yada yada..
