Need to be ready to ask dr questions/i am on the estrogen patch

I will be seeing my Dr on the 14th. I currently have an estrogen patch on, they stuck it to me after surgery.
What are some of the things i should be asking my doc? one question i have is why the nurse put the patch on my upper left back? I have been reading that it goes near your abdomen or lower back. I don't need progesterine because i have no uterus...(i'm learning all of this) is there a patch that women have better luck with, or any tips or hints? Thank you all for the support...i love this site. -Rachel

Hi

I'm sorry your post has been overlooked, and gone without a reply.

Here is a link to Hormone Therapy and Managing Surgical Menopause. There is a lot of information there, and it should help you with questions you will want to ask.

Learn as much as you can, so you will have more choice in decisions made for you.

Re: Need to be ready to ask dr questions/i am on the estrogen patch

I have learned a couple things. One, the Vivelle Dot patch seems to be the favorite and best sticking, but most expensive. For location, it is supposed to be below the waist, abdomen or hip/butt, change left/right alternating, but don't change front/back because absorption is different on the abdomen from on the back. Also if you do have symptoms, keep a log so you can track are they improving, or should your dose be adjusted. The articles probably can help with questions. I hope you have good results from your patch----they are great when it's a good match for you.

Thanks ladies, for responding! So far I am having good luck with the estradiol patch. It is big tho, and sticks pretty well but sometimes an edge will lift. I will read the information u suggested, and thanks again!!
