Blubbering idiot

Hi Girls.

The week before my TAH I had surgery to remove a kidney stone.

I had my TAH on 4/13/11 to remove a ovarian cyst the size of a loaf of bread on my right ovary the Dr suggested that we do the full hysterectomy since the cyst was so large and that would eliminate the chance of getting another cyst which was a great idea because during surgery they found fibroids in my uteras .

The dr started me on 2 MG Estradiol 2 dys after my surgery ( before that I was on ther patch) and was fine untill yesterday. I feel like a blubbering idiot. I have my 2 week ck tomorrow should I wait till then to tell the dr about this or should I call toady?

I have been doing great with the pain, and have been taking short walks
Thanks for any advice.

Re: Blubbering idiot


You've been through a lot so I'm glad you joined this site so you can share with women who can relate.

It's normal to be emotional post-op. You can call your doctor if it will help but it's fine to wait until your appointment tomorrow and discuss your concerns at that time. Fluctuations in hormone levels are the norm early in recovery and that's true even for those who kept their ovaries as well as for those who didn't, and whether or not hormone therapy is being used.

Right now you're recovering from major surgeries, your body is depleting the hormones your ovaries made and you're adapting to a new estrogen therapy. It will take time for things to level off and for your hormone therapy to reach optimal levels. One thing you can ask your doctor about is splitting your dose--taking 1mg in the morning and 1mg at night. For some women, splitting the dose helps keep symptoms better controlled.

Hang in there! It sure can get better.

Thank you so much for the info. Other than this site I don't know anyone that has had a hysterectomy.

I had a TAH and BSO almost 3 weeks ago! I know how you feel. I am on the vivelle dot and I was crying at everything-even cartoons. I went ahead and called my doctor and they increased the dosage on my patch. I could tell a huge difference by that night and have been doing great since. Hang in there!! Don't hesitate to call your doctor. I am glad I did, and they told me they were glad I called, and they didn't want me feeling like that. Take care !

Re: Blubbering idiot

Went to the Dr today and he started to explain to me about surgical menopause that everyone's body handles medication differently and that sometimes the patch works better and that he thought that I should try the patch, so he said that he would go grab me some trial patches and be right back when he got back I was crying he looked at me and told me to put the patch on right now I told him that I had already taken the pill that morning , he looked at me and told me that he thought I needed to double up today .... lets hope this works. They did tell me that I did not have to stay like I was, they made me feel much better!
