Life after total Hysterectomy - no hormones!?!
Hello; I am 48 years of age and diagnosed only a week ago. I have surgery scheduled 2/19 for a total Hyst. I just learned that because of the nature of uterine cancer and the way it thrives on estrogen I will not be able to take or use hormones after. I have no idea yet what this all means other than I am sure to be thrust into menopause immediately after surgery. Based on your experience, what can I expect? how to deal? Advice, suggestions and feedback all welcomed
