Menopausal symptoms 9 years later !!

Hi Everyone,
It's been a long time since I posted here but when I had my TAH in 2002, Hystersisters was my life line. I have checked in from time to time to see how others are getting on and think this online community is invaluable. I kept my ovaries after surgery and am occasionally suffered 'phantom periods'. This only happened a couple of times a year and was no big deal. However, recently I have been experiencing extremely sore breasts, terrible bloating and lower back pain. I don't take any form of medication. Anyone got any ideas what is going on ?

Re: Menopausal symptoms 9 years later !!

Hi!
I had my Hysterectomy in 2001 and was doing great without any hormone treatment. About 5 months ago I started getting almost like period cramps, lower back pain and bloating also. Went to the doctor 3 weeks ago and he said my Estrogen was low(really!!). He also said I had vaginal dryness. He put me on Estriadol 1mg and so far I've felt terrible not better. My cramps have gotten worse, Im constantly supper sleepy and I have very bad headaches. I will be 50 next year and I'm really scared about what I should do. My doctor says to continue with the hormones but my body is telling me no. I'm very frustrated and really dont know what to do.

Hi Maria,
Sorry to hear you are experiencing pain and discomfort after all you have been through. I thought that getting my uterus removed would give me a 'free card' from menopausal symptoms. I hate going to doctors, I have hardly been since my hysterectomy. I have been reading up and am considering the herbal route first. My friends have found great relief from things like Black Cohosh and Agnus Castus. I might pay a trip to my local Health store and see what they recommend. I will keep you posted.

Maria,
If you're taking any prescription meds, especially anti-depressants, be sure and google possible side effects between those herbs and the meds. Some work against each other.
