    Thank u for replying vajazzle,I was on the zoladex injection (which puts u through menopause) for 9 months prior to surgery so I have already experienced the menopause 😮
    If I take hrt till I’m roughly 50 which will be 12 years when I come off them will have have to go through all the symptoms again? I’m sooooo confused ?‍♀️ xxx
