Question - How long in surgical menopause? How long in surgical menopause?



So, I'm wondering, how long will I have the surgical menopause symptoms? I'm due to have LAVH next week, I'm 33 years old, I no longer have ovaries... so, I know I will have symptoms as soon as I awake from surgery. Will they last days? Months? Years? Decades? Any insight anyone can share would be greatly appreciated.

Everyone is different. There is no "normal"

Once you are in surgical menopause, you will always be in surgical menopause. As to the symptoms, everyone is different. Some women don't have symptoms immediately after, some do. I was one who did. It took me quite some time to find that place called hormonal balance. Once I got there, I stayed there.

You've already had your ovaries removed but kept your uterus?

Everyone experiences surgical menopause differently. Personally, I've be dealing with surgical menopause for the last 4 years and counting.

I was 40 when I had my hyster and my Dr said to expect 15 years of hormone replacement but that was not a concern like it is for women who don't have hyster. She said the important thing to get me to a comfortable state where not dealing with negative side affects.

Re: How long in surgical menopause?

After a series of surgeries eventually I'd end up*in surgical menopause *at the age of 25 as a result of endometriosis and a prolapsed uterus etc .... at the age of 37 I am still on HRT.If I miss switching my patch, within 48 Hrs my body loses it! My doctor tells me my body will tell me when it no longer requires HRT. I sure hope it tells me something soon!

Re: How long in surgical menopause?

I also am going through surgical menopause....was not expecting this brick wall to hit me like this but doc put me on hrt and things are starting to get a little better. Reach out to us if you need to. I'm so thankful that hyster sisters was here and I found a friend through here that I have been blessed with. Having someone that knows exactly what you're going through makes all the difference in the world.

Re: How long in surgical menopause?

Like other have said it varies as to how long it might or might not last - I've been going though it since my OP in the middle of 08, though a lot of it has toned down the mood swings are still in full force here and there enough that my hubby knows well enough to leave enough alone when they strike.
