While looking at my ovaries the surgeon said I had PCOS. I presumed that having them removed would sort this problem out. But I have since found out that the disease is a metabolic disease. I have high cholesterol, B12 deficiency, glaucoma (I have had some sight loss), I have struggled with my weight all my adult life and I am obese, I am bordering diabetic. My doctor has told me I have to lose weight, I want to but struggle with this. Would metformin help me at my age? It seems that many women take it to help them get pregnant. But of course I am more interested in the weight loss side of it -
Metformin helps to lose weight. It also helps pcos so try it. The other thing is they put you into surgical menopause, did they do any hormone replacement?
