I am in a similar position. I had a hysterectomy, oophrectomy, and appendectomy last spring when I was 38. My stomach was big then, but now it's even bigger and it's been a year. I don't think that I have the right dosage of hormones, and I see the doc in a week or two. I take half strength estratest (generic) and 1 or two sprays of evamist. I've been cleared to do what I feel up to doing, but I chose to avoid working my abs because every time I did my stomach would swell even more. Now that it's been a year, I'm going to start working my core, because I've been having back pain.

Exercise helps me greatly. I take Cenestin, 1.25 mg. I started out with a .6 dosage, but that just wasn't cutting it. I saw a huge improvement after they upped my dosage. I was gutted like a fish last spring, and had menopause thrust upon me along with alot of other health issues. I'm just now getting cleared to do simple exercises, no abs work though. I look pregnant, only the shape of my stomach is distorted due to the huge scar and the removal of so much of my guts. I refuse to accept this post surgery body, and am doing everything my docs allow to get my old body back. It is hard to be patient. None of my clothes fit, and I really do not want to buy new ones. It also helps to have a place can vent without having it come back to bite me. Sparkpeople is excellent for that. Blogging is a great tool. I stay anonymous so that I can be real. Welcome and good luck with your journey!

My name is Crystal, I am 33 years old and now post menopausal. I had a total hysterectomy a little over 2 years ago (or so I thought), then last december found out that I still had half of my left ovary embedded in my bowel. So after a 5 hour surgery and a colon resection, the menopausal symptoms finally started. I thought I was just breezing right along until my last surgery. I have two kids, one is 16 and the other is 9. I am a nurse working as an instructor at our local community college. I have tried several diets and haven't been able to stick with any, usually due to lack of planning and our hectic schedule with the kids ballgames. The last few (3-5) months have been rough. My belly has gotten huge, taken on the pregnant shape and my weight has gone up a few pounds, but my body shape is changing drastically. I just started estradiol 1mg last month and so far can't tell any diff with the moodiness, depression or weight issues. My labs show that I have completed menopause. Any advice or tips will be greatly appreciated.
