    • I had mine on July 11 this year. I had a few of the classic symptoms and I called my doc for a hormone and so far all is well. Please talk to your doc about this as you need to get all the hormone levels right.

    • I, too am a Hyster Sister. I had a complete four years ago. I had my last period for my 46th birthday. I was feeling the same way you are. I cried because I thought I had  mutilated myself. Even though I had a five pound uterus, I still thought I made a mistake by having it done. It was my choice. My doctor had given me other temporary options.
      After trying to deal with the surgery; the death of my father four months later; ups and downs with work, then the final blow, the death of my brother two years later, I went to my doctor. His wife is an herbalist. He recommended Maca. It’s a Peruvian root that is cooked then dehydrated and powdered. I take 1/4 teaspoon every day in a little water. In a matter of days, the emotional upheaval and the anger subsided. It helped with that spare tire that suddenly showed up around my middle. My hot flashes are almost unnoticible. Usually, I only have a mild one about 15 to 30 minutes afer taking the Maca. The powder is distributed by Whole World Botanicals. If you’ve not had any hormone related cancer, go to the web site, get the info and talk to your doctor. I am a much happier person and can deal with stress and emotional situations so much better now.

    • I had a partial hysterectomy when i was 36 and was warned I may hit menopause early. I turned 44 last week and no signs of it yet. I would talk to my doctor and ask if there are any medications that can help.

    • It will get better, over time they say.  But, if you are forced into an early hyster at the age of 26 because of endometroisis, then you find that you will need the hormone replacements or face osteoporosis at the age of 36 like I did. Believe me, I am not complaining, I do have lots of good days, and I have bad days.  Never had the night sweats, but have been facing a lot of the pains of thinking I’m going crazy, then crying over stupid things.  It will get better though and the HRT does help.estatic  Like everyone else says, talking to your doctor helps a lot.  Knowing your body is the key to getting the right answers from your doctors.
