Need HRT and fear I won't be able to take it!

Oh for the power of prayer!!!! 43 years old. TAH/BSO with soccer ball size tumor thought to be malignant (but not!!! Praise the Lord) on July 14 with 3 year history of Trigeminal Neuralgia right eye. (extemely painful, hospitalizations & self-injecting Demerol for periods of time to just get enough pain control to try yet another drug for "cure" or just plain improvement in quality of life.) Knew that hormones made neuralgia pain increase but went into surgery knowing neuralgia would either be much worse or hopefully much better. Again Praise the Lord, I have been much..... better. Though I still must wear a low dose moraphine (sp??) patch and take 2 other medications, I have hope of eventually not needing them either and being able to really enjoy life again.

But now, lack of hormones symptoms are beginning to set in and my much trusted Dr. (husband's sugical oncologist treating him for non-hodgkins lymphoma for the last 9 years - now you know how I have experienced the power of prayer so personally) is weary about beginning bio-identical HRT. My mother has severe osteoporosis and I am concerned about this and all the other problems associated with lack of hormones. We discussed this yesterday at my 4 week check-up but my Dr. didn't want to start anything yet because I again am running a low-grade fever - more antibiotics. He also started me on Bellergal-S for temporary help with the hot flashes. I have gotten so much needed information and support from my sisters here. Please pray that my Dr. works with me and I am able to take true HRT without starting my severe eye pain up again. I don't know if I could start all over again. The pain has run my whole family's life for the last three years and I have been at the end of my rope too many times to count. I do thank God that I have been blessed with a wonderful husband and great compasionate Dr.

For all others here on this site, I will continue to keep you and your concerns right here with me and my Lord.

Dear Marsha,

Miracles are testimonials to prayer and
I believe in the power of prayer and I
believe in miracles...Sometimes that is
all we need not even the skilled hands
and minds of physicians...sometimes not
even medicinal solutions...We are all so
different and our bodies are all reacting
differently...God has his reasons...
It is not to say that medical care should
not be seeked but miracles do happen.

I pray that God's Hands comfort you,
heal your heart and may the best possible
medical consultations be helpful and also
healing for you too!!!! ~*May you find the
strength you need and your burdens be

Thanks to each of you. Though we know in our heart that all we need is the Lord, it is so comforting to know that others care and will lift you up in prayer.
