Surgery in 8 days, question re: HRT please

Due to ongoing health issues, I'll be having my hysterectomy on Feb. 11th. They will be removing my uterus, remaining ovary (left side) and possibly the cervix.

My endocrinologist has suggested I take Estrace and Prometrium as HRT. I'm 34 years old, have a family history of osteoporosis and high blood pressure. So, he felt these were the best options for me.

I was just curious if anyone on here had ever been on these meds. If so, what pros/cons did you have?

I'm supposed to start taking them 2-3 days after my surgery. I'll go back to the endocrinologist 4 weeks later to test my levels again and go from there.

Any input would be greatly appreciated Thank you!!
