Any advice after hysterectomy?
I had a hysterectomy about three months ago. My life has been a nightmare ever since. I used to be cold all the time... now I feel like heat is coming from deep inside me. This goes on all the time.
I no longer can even use a sheet or even wear normal p.j.'s. I do not know if you would call it a depression but I don't care about anything. I have NO sex drive. My breast's are in pain all the time. I cannot concentrate or remember things anymore. I feel crazy half the time. I am tired. I do not sleep much. My hair is falling out. I have gained 25 pounds. My iron levels are low. I have mood swings. All of this is tearing my marriage apart. I am taking 200mg of progesterone - bio identical which seemed to help at first... well at least I went from sleeping 15 minutes a night to getting 4 to 5 hours of sleep so I was happy at first.
But now all the other symptoms are starting to be more than I can handle. Having the surgery is the worst decision I have ever made and would never tell anyone who did not have cancer that they should even consider it.
