Hello everyone, My name is Beverly and I'm new to this group. I'm having a hysterectomy next week (Valentine's Day) and would appreciate any advice or suggestions that you might have, especially about exercise. I've lost 18 since October but now I'm sure I will gain them back since I can't do any exercising for 6 weeks. My mom is coming to stay with me for 2 weeks, which is good, but she loves to cook and I love her cooking.
One day at a time!

Hi Lucy I use to take hormome replacement therapy. Not now. It made me have heart problems. I think it did anyway. Ever since I got off abruptly it made me have heart palputations. I ended up in the ER and admitted for four days. I now have to take beta blockers to keep my heart rate down. I was told you can't do that, very dangerous. Found out it was. I went back on for a month (patches) and weaned myself off gradually and did it the right way the second time around. Now like I said I don't take anything. But I do take the flaxseed oil and it helps. It also make me move my bowels better. Iwas having a real hard time with that. Doing much better. The only thing is I can't sleep and it drives me nuts. I will take an ambiem once in awhile. Not everyday because it is habit forming and your body will depend on it and I don't want that.
hi everyone. my name is lucy. i'm 43. i had a hysterectomy about 4 or 5 yrs ago. i never really understood much about it. i mean the after affects.but i read from some people it's more harder to lose when you've had this surgey. correct me if
i'm wrong. after my surgey i was put on cenestin. hormone pills. but short time after, i couldn't afford it. some say i really need it, some say i don't cause their doctor told them they don't really need it. so i'm confused. but i still have hot
flashes, like right now i live in VA, it's cold here, but i sleep with the fan. can't do without it. i have 3 grown kids.i'm originally from louisiana, so you know when summer time, i feel like sometimes i'm smothering. i'll appreciate any advice or comment. i'm so happy i found this forum. i was like lost. thank you all. oh among few other things. my hair sheds, my nails brittle. thats to name a few
