BHRT pre and post hysterectomy

Hi everyone. I am currently perimenopausal (very low test, prog and estr). My doctor has me on BHRT (supplementing all three). Most of my symptoms have been improving. The only symptoms not improving seem to be AUB and weight gain. So, my doctor did a D&C and hysteroscopy last week, finding an adnexal mass. I have a previous history of uterine fibroids (UFE performed 2.5 years ago). I have to followup next week for path results on the mass. My doctor has already said this needs to be removed and I am done with this mess. I'm going to ask her to perform a hysterectomy. That being said, since I am seeing improvements with my BHRT, I am concerned she is going to take me off the progesterone. Is there any reason why I can't continue with the BHRT as is if I want to do this? I'm sick of the weight gain and she once told me that I needed progesterone to balance out too much estrogen if I was going to lose weight. Is this correct even after hysterectomy? What are the pros and cons?

Re: BHRT pre and post hysterectomy

Visit with my doctor today. We scheduled hysterectomy for January 9, 2012. She will be leaving me on BHRT as is until it becomes apparent whether or not it will need to be tweaked. It isn't clear whether or not I am keeping my ovaries, so this is an open question for now. She believes in leaving her patients on progesterone after hysterectomy.
