7 weeks today.one week on hrt and i could flip!

hi all,
have had a really crappy few days.my other half,who is usually so good totally blanked me yesterday when i was trying to tell him about a job i have gone for....went to visit friends later.my female friend asked me about my interview,i said i will tell you another time seeing as no-one else seems to be interested!other half STILL didn't get it.i have simmered all night long and throughout most of today.cheeks flushed but feeling cold and shaky too.....went out in car by myself and could quite cheerfully have driven into a wall!!!such was my frustration and anger...is this the hormones kicking in?or what?i cried like a baby in the car too....really didn't feel like myself at all!!
i am healing well and walking better than before but how i felt these past few days...oh boy!!

Re: 7 weeks today.one week on hrt and i could flip!

Hi!

I'm sure there are others who are early in recovery and new to hormone therapy who can relate. This can be a difficult, emotional time while your body depletes the hormones your ovaries made and adapts to a new source of hormones. I remember being all emotional about getting out of the house to go to a local store for a few minutes when I was early in recovery. It makes no sense--it just happens!

It takes time for any hormone therapy to reach optimum levels so hang in there and try keeping a journal of your symptoms. Over time you should see that your symptoms are fewer and being controlled. If not, definitely let your doctor know so that any adjustments to your hormone therapy can be made.

We sure don't want you to drive into a wall! If you're feeling that bad, be sure to call your doctor immediately or seek out intervention help at the hospital or suicide prevention center.

I hope you feel much better soon!

Re: 7 weeks today.one week on hrt and i could flip!

I've been feeling awful for a couple days now also. I'm not on HRT yet because of Endo found on my uterus during surgery. I find myself crying alot and being weepy and just miserable. My teen is driving me completely insane at points where I get so snappy to the point where I can't even stand myself. I'm just over 2 weeks post op also. I'm afraid that I'm going to get worse and that HRT won't work, if I need it at all. I think what we all go through is just a crazy emotional roller coaster. Everyone is different....my husband described me as "poking at the hibernating bear" I feel awful when they tell me how psychotic I can get at times, I really hope this roller coaster is just temporary for all of us, I really can sympathize with you! Even wish I hadn't had the surgery at times cause I'm not feeling better yet, only time heals I know, but not fast enough for me. Cabin fever is even kicking in already! Oiy, all I can say is that it should pass, at least that's my hope for the next couple weeks LOL

I can totally relate as I was an emotional wreck until my hormones finally settled down. The good news is that it does improve. It may take tinkering with the HRT doses to start feeling more normal. And sometimes you have to use a different hormone than you first started with. Sending hugs

Re: 7 weeks today.one week on hrt and i could flip!

thanx guys,
it was pretty scary!i have suffered(as have the others around me!)with pms and mood swings.i thought things had calmed down over the past year but yesterday frightened me a little.i went from crying to anger in less than 2 seconds!the switch was quite dramatic.i was in the car and as said i could have driven it into a wall,not from a suicide point of view but frustration and not feeling i was in control more than anyhting.i am guessing my own hormones(what was left of them) and the new hormones maybe rubbed each other up...i don't know?! but i am feeling a lot more me today.this site is an absolute Godsend...i have no close female friends who have experienced this surgery,so cannot pick up the phone and vent to them or ask/read questions.i will certainly recommend this site to future sisters and again i cannot thank those enough for setting this up!no wonder women of old got carted off to asylums after having hysterectomies!if they didn't have anyone to talk to,it must have made them mad!!thanx for your replies and allowing me to put down in words how i felt....love to all...xx

Wonder how long until he asks? I know that for me sometimes it was the smallest things that irritated me beyond belief. I had been hospitalized when the hormones were really raging and I remember throwing a fit about the room either being too hot or too .... cold! I just flipped out about it. Thank goodness for nurses who asked me what was going on and let the docs know. I think that I may have scared a few of the interns into a different specialty though Probably were praying that there wasn't anyone else like me. It is much better now that we have found a good balance.
