Hi there hotflashes65.
No doubt about your doc being insensitive and negligent (in my own pea brain opinion.) He/She sound oblivious to your situation. What I did was go to ER, and they referred me to a doc that actually understood my health problems. She also took medicare. I've never been sorry for taking that step. I'm 63.
God bless you with wisdom, knowledge and peace,

Hi Hottie! I forgot to mention something that may or may not help you. I read on a bunch of web sites that Gabapentin is also used for hotflashes . Go figure. I wouldn't take that to the bank, however, that's what I read. (and I'm sure everything we read on the net is believable. NOT) Your doc needs to have his license revoked for a few months. Then maybe he'd learn compassion.

I had a hysterectomy because of womb cancer - and some (not all) womb cancers are fuelled by estrogen ... It seems as if some womb cancers are also related to breast cancer; why not ask your consultant to make sure that there are no added risks to you in taking the HRT.
