Question - Hormones or not? Hormones or not?

3 days post LAVH/BSO. I am 50 and had pretty much gone thru menopause before my surgery, so i was used to the hot flashes, etc. I woke up after surgery with a Climara patch on my right hip. I noticed I had some numbness of my right leg above my knee, with itching. It was related to my patch, so i took it off. I'd like to wait and see how I do before I go on hormaones. I want the right mix for me. Does anyone else wait and see? When my 2nd son was born I started having migraines from birth control pills, so I've always been afraid that going on strogen might be dangerous for me. Is that true?

Re: Hormones or not?

I have always felt bad with birth control pills too! My physician told me to wait and see how I feel after surgery (before he prescribes anything). I have had an uncomfortable week (post op wk 4) trying to sleep. I wake up sweating and hot, and then I get cold and I have a hard time falling back asleep. So I'm wondering if I may need something. I had regular periods up until the time of my surgery. I did have some other perimenopause symptoms (difficulty concentrating, skin crawling, mood swings.) I'll run it by the doc on Monday and see what he says.
