Re: How soon after surgery did you experience changes?

I've got my post op appt on 5/24 mostly to get the all clear for work with no restrictions. I might need something for the insomnia like Lunesta. So far the hot flashes are mild, infrequent & bearable.

Re: How soon after surgery did you experience changes?

I had total on 4/13 and started hrt in the hospital. I wasn't taking any chances!! Felt great, bragged that it was a piece of cake. Went back to work after work after two week then WHAM!!!!!!!!!! I SWEAR a truck hit me and I just didn't see it!!! Have been off work all this week. Sleeping 20-22 hours a day, no appetite (the only good thing in all of this is i have lost 6 lbs!!) and overall feel like a noodle!!! Went to the Dr. Tues and she doubled my hormones but said my levels were very low and it would take a while to see a difference and to keep resting. She said if this doesn't work we would switch (on Premarin)
Does anyone know how long it takes for a dose change to kick in before you would do somenthing else? I go back to the doctor on Tuesday. And to just add a wrinkle to all this, I'm supposed to take my family to Disneyworld next weekend for a week!!!! Anyone know of a miracle energy drug that is NOT illegal?!!

Wow. I think many of us over estimate our abilities sometimes. I'm envious of your ability to sleep for that many hours, I can only dream of sleeping that long. I can only say good luck to you and make sure you get enough protein & enough fat to help power you through your trip to Disneyworld

Re: How soon after surgery did you experience changes?

I have noticed that. I bet it's the hormones. I am nauseous after I eat anything, asked Dr. about it yest. and she said that was the hormones. Switched from Premarin to the gel yest so will be interested to see if that will change anything.

Re: How soon after surgery did you experience changes?

That sucks. I hope you get the nausea under control. I know they can give you something to help. I haven't started HRT yet. So far everything is bearable, I mean the sweats suck & the inability to regulate my body temp is a challenge but I can manage so far. It's frustrating because I was eating something the other day that normally tastes good but it just didn't seem to taste the same or that good for that matter.

Re: How soon after surgery did you experience changes?

I got symptoms around 2 weeks. I have hot flashes, nausea, brain fog, trouble sleeping, and mood changes. I'm not on HRT. I started Evening Primrose Oil, hopefully that helps. For nausea, I have Zofran or Atarax.

I've had taste buds issues before. I can't tell if its from allergies/sinus problems, medicines, or hormones.

Re: How soon after surgery did you experience changes?

Mine was 2 weeks. And everyone is different. I work out 2 hours a day im46 145lbs working out you burn through hormones faster. Also I hear adding progestrone to est hekps keep endo away. If you cant take hrt. A lady swears by centrum menapause and evening primrose. Who knows I wasnt so lucky with hrt. As my dose was so low I ended up with chronic insomina anxiert heart palps. Hot flashes. It took alot for me and ended up on celexa and klonipin. Just be mindful if you work out alot. and you start feeling bad after you need est. Lol hope you get great results
