2nd Doctor wants me to try being off hormones

Well I am 5 weeks post op and went for a 2nd opinion because my doctor has messed me up had to ha 3 surgeries. And wanted another opinion to make sure I was ok. He said I was healing normal now so that was good and remove som stitches that were left in and were getting infected. But he said he wanted me to try going with out hormones and see what my body does. I have been using estrogel .06 one time a day. I haven't had any symptoms except I notice I get a little warmer than usual and I can't sleep. He said that I am in surgical menopause but if that is all the symptoms I have then I don't need to be on hrt. Has anyone had there doctor say or do this. I guess I'm going to try worse thing that happens is me getting back on hrt. I'm worried about vaginal dryness though. Any advise? Thanks

It never occurred to him that the reason your symptoms have cut down is that you're ON estrogen???? If there's no medical reason for you to NOT use estrogen, I'd take what he said with a grain of salt and move on to someone who understands a woman's hormonal needs a bit better than him. Just because he has an M.D. doesn't mean he has a clue! He is obviously of the mindset that estrogen is a bad thing.

Thank you for replying. I found it strange for him to take me off them. But he thinks I can handle it. I guess I don't know. It has been a hassle with all the doctors. I feel like they are not looking at what is best for me. Thanks

Its not wise to just stop your Hrt. It will throw your system into a tail spin. I am not sure why he would make the suggestion to go off them to begin with since you still are a little warmer and can't sleep while taking them. I suggest you find a dr. that is knowledgable in hrt. Going off then back on them could cause you more problems then he seems to think.
Good luck
