Gene mutation and hrt question

Hello ladies.
I have the PALB2 gene mutation, bc twice (double mastectomy) and hysterectomy for preventative reasons last April.
I'm 42 yrs old and really struggling with menopause symptoms. Countless flushes, aches and pains, heart racing so fast it feels like my body is vibrating etc.
I'm on beta blockers and anti anxiety medication.
I visited a menopause specialist and he has prescribed by a low dose of hrt (sandrena 0.5 mg gel) and I am excited to feel better and hopefully get of the anxiety meds but I feel so nervous about the hrt...I'm worried about the increased risk of cancer etc.
Any thoughts? X

I've moved your post here to the GYN Genetics forum as I think you will have a better chance of getting input for your concerns.

Have you started the hormone therapy and if so, how are you doing?

I hope you get some input soon from members who can share from experience with this!

Gene mutation and hrt question

Hi. I have started but it's not working. I feel the same, so starting to add in an oral tablet next week but if that doesn't work they will stop treatment.
I'm just feeling disillusioned now I think

Awww, I'm sorry that you aren't getting relief with it. I can say from experience that it can take time to hit on the right dose and method of delivery. I hope the tablet will help!

Please keep us updated on how you are doing.
