Thank u,
Kat

Wish I Had the Answer

HRT is such a hot topic right now! I just got a booklet from one of the drug companies on ovarian cancer facts (along of course with materials for ITS drug) and in there it says Estrogen is not out of the question for ovarian cancer fighters; my own gyn (No, I didn't know about gyn/onc's, never heard the term, four of them here) was going to prescribe it to me last April (before the recurrence) and yet some say absolutely not! I don't know what the thinking is on endocervical cancer. Are you near a NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center where you could consult with a gyn/onc and see what their thoughts are on HRT for you? It's a tough call--I have said no flat out. The gyn/onc may be your best resource if you're concerned. A big for a big decision.

I am in the same quandry.....I had a complete hyst in July for endometrium cancer, stage 1. My reg. gyn feels I should wait for two years to use ERT, but the gyn/onc/surgeon feels very strongly that I should be on it now. He will not even discuss natural remedies for hotflashes, etc..... He keeps pushing the ERT...saying if you need a natural supplement for hot flashes use ERT and keep your bones healthy. I don't know what to do.....when there are so many opposing positions on the subject of ERT.....If both of my dr's were of the same opinion I would feel better but they both are on such different ends of the spectrum. So far I am doing well without ert....I take a bunch of vit supplements and some natural remedies that I have researched and gotten approval from my reg. gyn.

Chris,

First of all I want to say I'm sorry that you had to hysto. But, all is well with you? I do hope so.
Thank you so much Chris, you are a living doll to respond to me. I have been walking on egg shells-literally-it seems trying to find what is best for me concerning HRT. My mother died of cancer almost 18yrs ago with the same thing I had. So, I'm just a little delirious when it comes to this. I have not decided which way to lean as of now. All of my Drs(family,gyno,oncology, & uro-gyn) want me to use them. So, far I am. I wouldn't mind if I was a bit older. Would I not use? Yes-in a heart- beat!! May I ask, how old are you? I will understand, if you do not answer.
May God richly bless you,
Angels to watch over you,
Kat
