how long does it take to get the hormonal balance right?
I have been on tri-est and progesterone starting a few weeks after my TAH. See end of my post for details.
I have been seeing my doctor regularly. A fe w weeks ago, after a saliva test, she told me to reduce my DHEA down to 20mg a day instead of 40 a day. I still had heaps of the 40mg capsule so she said to take 40mg every second day.
I still get flair ups of hot flashes from time to time. I tire easily, feel exhausted when I been out and about. Still having digestive problems and am on a restricted diet.
Not really feeling happy, can easily feel what could be a low grade depression.
I have been on an anti depressant since before the surgery and am on 25mg of prothiadin at night.
She has advised me to stay on this for the time being.
I can have sleeping problems, wake in the night or early and can't get back to sleep.
When will I feel normal? When will the hormonal balance feel right?
I am due to see my doctor mid January but just thought I would post here to see if anyone can shed some light on what is going on for me.
Also, had a small amount of bleeding yesterday.Very strange. I have what feels like some pre menstrual cramps and dragging feeling today.
Any thoughts and/or support appreciated. Right now, it's hard to imagine feeling good or "normal" again.
