Sign of Surgical Meno?

Well I am 6 days post op, kept one ovary, no hormone supplements yet. I felt pretty fine afterward, all things considered. But starting on Christmas Day, I've felt my energy levels decrease, which is really interesting as I'm not especially active right now. (I've already considered the pain meds and have dr's app't tomorrow, just seeking opinions here).

I also feel...like an agitation or irritation listening to my DH speak. Maybe others as well, but especially him. And I thought we got along pretty well.

Allright, thank you for sharing your opinions and experiences.

You are still very early post op. It can take some time for your other ovary to wake up and for your body to recover from surgery. I think you need to give it some time before you decide you are in menopause.

Energy levels decreasing after surgery is not uncommon at all. Your body is recovering from MAJOR surgery!

Re: Sign of Surgical Meno?

Ok, how about hair loss? I am rather confused about hormones right now. Is it too early to be seeing signs? I wanted to talk to my Doc today, and his response to my hot flashes.."welcome to the club." Not necessarily a bad answer, just not one I was expecting!

So Ladies, what do you do to manage hair loss? Thank you for always being here for all of my questions and concerns. I can never express how grateful I am to be part of this site.

There are sooo many different side affects to having a hysterectomy &
we don't know how our bodies will respond until it happens. I had my procedure 3 months ago & I didn't notice a big difference in my body (low estrogen level) until 4 wks ago. Just hang in there & try not to stress too much.... Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Yes, that can be a part of the trauma of surgery and/or hormone issues. Again, you are VERY early post op.

Once you are farther along, if the hair loss continues you can ask your doctor about taking Evening Primrose Oil and Fish Oil. The supplements improved my hair health alot.

Until than, I would suggest that you start pampering your hair, using a vitamin infused shampoo and conditioner and giving it a break from blow dryers, curling irons, etc whenever possible. A deep conditioning treatment once a week may not hurt either.
