hRT after surgery

I am scheduled to have TAH BSO 8/5. Will they start me on HRT right after surgery or do they make you go back and start it post op? Thanks

Re: hRT after surgery

Hello, marathonlady!

My doctor started me on hormone therapy the day after my surgery, so I was still in the hospital at that point. I've been using it every since, which is over eight years now.

Some doctors do start women out on hormones immediately while others take the approach of waiting until symptoms start. Be sure to ask your doctor this important question. Also, you might want to start thinking about your options when it comes to hormone therapy. You can get a good idea of what's available in articles 8 -11 in this resource: Hormone Jungle Articles.

I hope this helps. Best wishes for your surgery and recovery!

Re: hRT after surgery

My dr had me wait... lasted 4 days after surgery before I called back for HRT. Depends on your circumstances. Those with endo might wait or add progesterone to estrogen when they start.

Good luck with your surgery! Good question to ask your dr during pre-op regarding HRT and his/her thoughts. Better to get informed here first.

hRT after surgery

My dr started me on .45 mg of premarin the day after my surgery. It just seems like every woman and every dr is a little different.
I have had minimal hot flashes in the 5 weeks since my surgery.

Re: hRT after surgery

I started .06 dose of premarin the next day after surgery. That was 11 years ago and still on same dose. Just this week on Testosterone injections to sex with lost sex drive. Any one taking it? any bad systoms?
