Re: trying 1mg of estrace before wed

Hi!

A couple of days isn't going to give a very good picture of how you will do on the hormone therapy your doctor wants you to take. Plus, since you still have your ovaries, adding additional estrogen may cause you to have menopause symptoms since adding (and subtracting) hormones can cause fluctuating levels.

You can expect to have menopause symptoms after surgery, too. It takes time for the body to deplete the hormones the ovaries made and it also takes time to adjust to hormone therapy. Hopefully you'll have an easy transition. You might want to start keeping a symptom journal so that your doctor can adjust your dose over time, if necessary.

Best wishes for your surgery on Wednesday!

Thank.. ya i think 1mg is a pretty low dose? He just wanted to make sure that i was ok for a couple days i guess. I took it last night before bed, didnt have any problem so will take it again tonight..i have heard many people get a shot after surgery but he didnt say anything about that yet.

Oral Estrace comes in three strengths--0.5mg, 0.1mg and 0.2mg. The dose your doctor prescribed is the same as I've seen others mention frequently around this site.

I started on hormone therapy the day after my surgery. I never got a hormone shot. I suppose it's an individual thing so ask your doctor if that's in the plan for you.
