4 1/2 months post op and weepy. Pls. help!!

I haven't been on this board for about 2 months. I had hysterectomy on 4/10 but kept ovaries. I was doing okay for the first few months now I fell like i am going nuts!!! Here are my symptoms (oh, and I'm only 31)
- Depressed (one day I'm fine, next I'm weepy and sad for no reason)
-Extremely Anxious! I can't sit still and everything bothers me (especially barking dogs!!!)
-Constipation (using metamusil and stool softener)
-Insomnia! I can't sleep but I am wired feeling instead of tired.
-Having panic attacks again!\
-Acne on my face yet wrinkles and dryskin on my face too!!
I feel like I am going crazy. Has anyone had these problems after hysterectomy? I haven't called the doctor b/c I fell like some days I am fine just a little stressed then there are days like this that I am freakin' out! I started taking St. John's Wort today. Someone said that would help. Dr. didn't put me on any other hormones since I kept my ovaries and they should "function" he said.

Please give me any information you can. Thanks a million!

Dear BB. Sometimes ovaries are just not the same after surgery. They can "go to sleep" for awhile. Sometimes it takes 4-6 months for them to revive. Sometimes they just stop working. In some women the ovaries never begin working again. Your problems surely sound hormonal. Why don't you check with doctor about having you hormone levels checked. Good luck to you.

Janie is right by the sound of these symptoms you need your levels checked. I had similar problems and can identify with the mood swings, anxiety, dry skin, face breaking out etc. The adrenal glands produce smaller amounts of ovarian hormones and can supplement so if you are still having these symptoms despite a normal blood test then a trial of estrogen to see if it resolves would be a good idea. My blood test was pretty good but boy was I exhausted and started picking up every virus going. So we came to the conclusion that my adrenal glands were in fact very efficient but that we had better give them a rest and do some supplementing. It made a huge difference. Good luck.

Hi Chestersmom!!

Definately sounds hormonal!:evil:

When a uterus is removed blood
supply is cut off from ovaries
and sometimes they die out,most
of the time menopause will occurr
earlier too,They say average is 2 to 5
years after uterus is removed.
Also after tubes are tied this can
happen too.
Drs really p me off that they dont
discuss this or even think it as
a reality after surgery!!
This is not in your head!!! If
this dr doesnt believe this as
a reality please find a dr who will
Hope You Feel Better Chestersmom!!!!
