I don't know where to post this question:

I came home from the hospital in such good spirits, and over the past couple of weeks, I have found myself crying for no apparent reason off and on. It is driving me crazy.

I am feeling better physically, but it is becoming a HUGE effort to even want to leave the house.

I left surgery with a hormone patch (no ovaries) and I have not had any hot flashes.

Then, there is the issue of weight. Since the birth of my son (10 years ago), I have struggled to keep weight off. During the past two years, I have felt so horrible, that I haven't been faithful with walking and pounds that I have worked so hard to get off, have crept back, plus more.

Now, I am hearing/reading that with a hormone patch, losing weight is an uphill battle that will not be won. Talk about discouraging. Makes me want to weep as I type. UGH!

Any honest feedback out there?

Re: Hormones?


If you continue to have emotions that are not getting better , then let the doctor know. Sometimes an adjustment in dosage may help. I was very emotional after my surgery and even went from the pill to the patch because the pill would not keep me balanced.

I don't think it is a losing battle with the weight gain, just a little harder. I found that going on a good healthy diet and exercise several times a week to be the key. I cut out junk food, sodas, sweets, fried foods, and fatty foods. I eat baked , grilled, broiled chicken, turkey, and fish,steam vegetables,and eat fresh fruits. You will feel better and keep your weight from creeping up if you eat in moderation.

Hang in there

Re: Hormones?

I am newly on an estrogen patch - only 10 days. I have noticed less of an appetite, particularly for sweets and carbs (see my other post). I am actually hoping it is a result of the patch LOL and hope it continues.

Good luck!
