Menopausal symptoms after partial hysterectomy
I am a 48 year old woman, and had a partial hysterectomy 10 years ago. After my surgery, it was discovered that I suffered from adenomyosis. I still have one ovary, but my cervix was removed also. My surgeon at the time stated that I wouldn't need to go on hormones for at least 10 to 15 years.
In the past five to six years, I have gained a fair bit of weight, and have bad anxiety problems. I really tend to sweat easily, but lately, I have found that I do not have to do anything physical at all, and I will suddenly start feeling really hot in the top part of my body, and I will really start to sweat. (Not sure if these are hot flashes). After the heat passes, I feel chilled. I have had some night sweats too. I have been exercising regularly now and the weight just doesn't seem to be coming off that easily.
I am on anxiety medications and sleep medications. I am depressed a lot; but not to an extreme degree. Another symptom is that I bloat a lot, even after eating a small amount of food.
Do you believe that the progesterone cream would benefit me? I really hope so. Any help would be appreciated.
