No ERT coming out of surgery, but still haven't had a follow up appt.

My regular OB/GYN checked my hormone levels prior to me consulting with a surgeon. He never got back to me with results, so I assumed they were near normal. I consulted with the surgeon, scheduled surgery, got the prep kit, scheduled time off, blah blah blah, and the day before surgery he called and said "go see an endocrinologist before a surgeon." I had nearly zero estrogen and progesterone floating around . He and the surgeon consulted and decided I should go through with the surgery regardless.

I didn't have any patches applied or leave the hospital with any ERT/HRT prescriptions. Follow up is scheduled for next Tuesday.

In the meantime, I actually feel pretty normal. Except that this morning when my husband asked if I wanted another cup of coffee, i replied "I probably shouldn't. Don't want to get nauseated." He paused and said "is that a yes or a no?" His tone sounded really crabby to me and it made me cry. Which hurt my abdomen something fierce. Replaying the conversation is making me cry again.

SO.. think it's hormones/surgical menopause, or is my husband really a crab? Should I talk to my doctor before the follow up? I'm suddenly a mess. Like, in the course of writing this post, I've gone from fine to stupidly depressed.

Your body will be out of sorts from the surgery and medications so it might be good to wait awhile and see if you have hot flashes which is a good sign your estrogen is low.

Thanks. It was a rough night last night, and I was panicky over just about everything. And now that office hours are over, it's time for me to find something else to fret about.
