Confused with differing accounts

Hi I have come in here in the hope that it is not all bad. I have many friends who told me having a hysterectomy would be brilliant and I would feel fantastic as they do. I have not noticed them putting on extra weight or being down. They seem quite happy. I have had my womb removed but due to complications I need to have my ovaries removed soon and go on HRT. I have looked all over the interent and found all the horror stories about 30 to 40lbs of weight gain, mood swings, loss of sex drive. Now what I don't get is what I find in the forums does not seem to be what the girls tell each other in real life. Why? I am getting increasingly depressed at the thought of HRT! Come on there must be some good points somewhere.....anywhere? Or does everyone get fat and never have sex again? lol Give me some hope please....from Clevercat.

Re: Confused with differing accounts

Hi Clevercat, There will always be some women who have a harder time finding the "perfect" replacement. There are also those of us who plugged along for years skinny and amorous! LOL! I think a lot of us in here have hit a rough patch and are just looking for some assistance. I would imagine those who hit the sweet spot right off the bat probably won't find their way in here...they don't need to! If having your ovaries removed is what you need to do, try not to get overly stressed about it. There are so many options for replacement now. Sometimes the worst part of it is ending up with a Dr. who isn't up to speed. In that case you find another...or, go in armed with your own research.

I found leaving the pain of endometriosis and 3 weeks of bleeding a month to be liberating. I actually felt a sense of relief!

Re: Confused with differing accounts

Clevercat, (I like your name!).. I have had everything removed, first the uterus, then 9 years later, the ovaries (endometrial mass engulfing them)... anyway, yes, it was a struggle initially to find a hormone balance, (most of us here have), but I have to say, life is good. I'm not overweight, and enjoy a healthy love life. I think it's easier to complain about the bad, than praise the good (most posts are from those who are not happy, the others are busy getting on with their lives)!

Hope you have an easy time with HRT, the sisters here are a great resource!
