whats the difference?

I am 4 days post-op, I am on the estradiol patch...the nurse put it on me a few hours after surgery. It is still stuck in place, itches just a little bit. What are some things I should be looking for in the patch? The way it stays put? Does name brand work better? How will I know if this is the patch for me? Why a patch versus a pill?

Re: whats the difference?


My doctor started me off on a patch immediately after surgery. There really is no right or wrong when it comes to ert, it is about what is going to work for you. It may take awhile before you know. During the early weeks/months post op your body may be going thru many changes. Adjusting to life without the ovaries, recovering from surgery and using up its stored reserves of hormones. The best advice I can give is to be patient.

You can read more about hormones in the articles at www.hormonejungle.com

Re: whats the difference?

Thank you Kim. I feel pretty good emotionally right now..and I am not having any symptoms of menopause yet. I've been reading and hearing opinions on the different patches and pills etc. How long have u used the patch? Do u know why some prescribe the patch vs pill?
