Have u heard anything about depression after hysterectomy? I had severe baby blues after my 2yr old was born. I'm worried about falling back into that depression again

Re: 31 yr old pre op hysterectomy

I know that I heard that you can get depressed but not sure if that's all a personal thing or a typical side effect. My doctor told me that there is a medicine out there that breast cancer patients use for depression that actually helps with hot flashes. Seeing as I have endo (which is probably the case with you) I can't get hormone replacement therapy for @ 6 months. She said she would prescribe me that med to help with the hot flashes seeing as it's non hormonal. It might be very helpful to you on both levels. I'm so nervous about so much. I'm looking forward to all the help this site can offer. You and I def have alot in common. We should compare stories and symptoms after.

Re: 31 yr old pre op hysterectomy



We are glad you have found HysterSisters.com and I hope we can offer you helpful information and support!

I had my hysterectomy for endometriosis at 25. There are many other women on the site who we were also in the 20's and early 30's. So, you are not alone!

One thing you do need to know is that a hysterectomy, with or without an oophorectomy, does not cure endometriosis. Many of us continue to have issues post hysterectomy. The key is the skillful excision of the endometriosis implants, not the removal of our reproductive organs. To learn more about endometriosis and to meet up with other ladies dealing with this condition, you are more than welcome to visit our Endometriosis Support forum!

As far as depression, yes it can be an issue post hysterectomy simply because of the trauma, changes, and emotions involved with the surgery. However, it is more common if one also has an oophorectomy (removal of the ovaries) because depression can occur with low hormones or hormonal imbalance.

Re: 31 yr old pre op hysterectomy

So we all seem to have endo in common. Pretty much no HRT for at least 6 months. Anyone been looking into what might help? I have a list growing for my doc. Black cohosh is on the top of that list.

Re: 31 yr old pre op hysterectomy

Hi

Im 36 and having a surgery on Friday. Have severe scar tissue from previous surgeries and C sections. My insides are a mangled up mess. I also have PCOS. I suffer with prolonged heavy bleeding that goes on for months on end. So docs are going to take out my uterus, one ovary, both Fallopian tubes, my appendix and then drill the cysts on remaining ovary.
