4 1/2 mos post op and worse peri-menopause symptoms than before

I had my LAVH on June 11th. The ovaries were left. The past two months I have been in peri-menopause hell. I am getting more hot flashes, mood swings, weight gain, trouble staying asleep and other symptoms that I never had before surgery. I went to family practice doctor, and he put me on Venlaxifine (sp?) to help with the moodiness and hot flashes. Before the surgery I was on Lexapro for mood swings. I am really not a happy camper. Should I see the gyno for HRT? I have breast cancer in the family (mom and aunt), so I worry about that considering their cancer was hormone receptive. My cousin told me about bio-identical hormones, but family doctor said really no difference between the two. Can someone give me a little advice here? Thanks!
