Emotional Rollercoaster & I still have my ovaries??

I had a LVAH on June 11, 2010. They took my cervix and uterus, I kept my ovaries. About 3 weeks ago (about 9 weeks post-op) I started feeling very emotionally unstable. I can go from crying to screaming in a second. I've also noticed that I can go from feeling madly in love with my husband to feeling totally alone and distant from him. I have 4 kids at home, and I don't want them to feel the tension between my husband and I. Do I need to get on hormones? I've been taking anti-depressants for about 15 years, so I'm unsure of what's going on.

Hi PlainCityGal33,

You might have sleeping ovaries. It is not unusual for the ovaries to go to sleep for awhile..after a hyst. Generally, ladies can report hot flashes, night sweats and some mood changes. I might suggest you check with your Dr...and ask about a possible hormone test and temporary HRT...if the symptoms are really bothering you.

Best wishes~

Mary

Hi PlainCityGal33,

I can suggest going to the Google search line at the right hand side of the web site...and type in sleeping ovaries. You will find several threads on the subject.

Best wishes again ~

Mary
