Please can anyone give me any feedback on what has/hasn’t worked for you?
I have had Sandrena gel, patches and am now on tablets. I am 8 weeks post op for TLAH/BSO but had hrt before as I was on Zoladex.
I am still suffering with flare ups of really awful joint pains all over my body along with waking up with a massive hangover feeling (not drinking alcohol) and dryness in all my mucous membranes but am on a high dose hrt. My last blood test showed my oestrogen at just over 400 which is a good reading but I am still getting severe symptoms of low oestrogen. Some days I am not as bad and think I am getting somewhere and then it happens again.
I am back at work this week and just so upset and fed up. Everyone said I would feel like a new woman – ha!
The only thing I haven’t tried is something like Premarin or the implants.
I’m now 6 months post op and still trying to find a nice HRT!
I’ve tried Premarin, took it for 3 months and spent most of that time in tears! Really low mood on it plus I didn’t like the fact it was made from pregnant mates urine. I’ve also tried Livial (didn’t seem to do anything) and now on Kliofem but not keen on that either!
I think it’s just got to be trial and error and it may be that Premarin would suit you. I’ve read a bit about an hrt called Femoston but not sure if I can have that as my TAH was due to endometriosis.
I wish you luck and if you find something that agrees with you let me know!
