Anyone with GAD before Surgical Menapause?

I have my appointment on Friday with my doctor. At that time, I will be scheduling my TAH 0varies Tubes gone. Anyway, I am 45 and I have been diagnoised with Generalized Anxiety Disorder since my twenties. What will happen when I go into surgical memapause? I am worried about so many things! I plan on discusing HRT, but what will happen with my anxiety? I basically have been on Zoloft forever. Any thoughts?

Re: Anyone with GAD before Surgical Menapause?

Yes. They had to unexpectedly remove my remaining ovary during my TAH. Even though they placed a .05 mg estrogen patch on me the next day, I experienced a lot of anxiety the first week. When I told my doctor about the anxiety at my one week post-op check, she upped the patch to .1 mg estradiol. That seemed to do the trick. I wish I had known to discuss my GAD before the surgery with her. It never occurred to me that surgical menopause would set it off but it did. I was on Zoloft for 5 years (had good results with it) but have been off of it for 4 years now without many GAD issues. Thankfully, I had some Xanax at home to get me through the first week. Major surgery like this (even without losing your ovaries) can also set off some anxiety. I would talk to your doctor about this before the surgery so if you need any additional medications your doctor will be prepared. Good luck. I'm over 4 weeks out and am doing well with the anxiety.

Re: Anyone with GAD before Surgical Menapause?

I had anxity after mt surgery, didnt realize it, thought I was having a heart attack. Everyone is so different, and hormones play a huge role in this my problem was I was put on alow dose to long after my surgery that set off a lot of issues, I upped my est, and started celexa whicn has helped me get through this and klonipin due to the chronic insomina, I think getting you hormone right is a big key in how you feel after

Re: Anyone with GAD before Surgical Menapause?

im 27 and have dealt with GAD and PD since I was 13. I wasn't warned by my dr that it could get worse after my surgery. i'm 6 months post op and have been having Panic and Anxiety non stop since my surgery. Then again, I believe this is a hormone related issue, which I will address with him today. I have always found it interesting that when I was on Lupron, had no hormones, I didnt have anxiety or panic. But when I was on birth control pills, I was freaking out all the time. When I wasnt on anything, I was in between. Its crazy to think that maybe hormone imbalances throughout my life might have contributed to my GAD!

Re: Anyone with GAD before Surgical Menapause?

Me too. Birth control made me freak out. I didnt think I had anxity but sure have had my share of stress. Doct seem to think slapping estrogen fixes everything and it doesnt. Nothing replaces our own. I can say its getti.g better but I truly need to make peace with this estrogen or decide to go through menapause. Celxa has helped with the attacks I just hope when they take me off the benzos I will sleep lol always here if needed
