... since. My gyno recently retired. He was giving me injectable delostrogen. I need to get some serious advice as I cannot go off this cold turkey and my new Primary care phy does not seem to want to address the problem
You need a new gyne fast. I used the estrogen patch. I liked it. You won't have a withdrawal but symptoms of no estrogen.
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.
As funny as it seems my friend has hot flashes and her doc put her on birth control pills because of the estrogen I believe.
I would find a hormone doctor that deals with womens hormones. They seem to take a women your age serious that has had a full hysterectomy
Sorry to hear you are having problems also!My Dr has been trying other hormones with not good results! I wish we could get at least an answer of why they are't making it or what ever the problem is! I also had a complete hysterectomy at a fairly young age 37 and when my Dr figured which hormone to give (which was cenestin) it really worked to best! Don't know how we can get it!
