Post hysterectomy poor immune system

Since a hysterectomy nearly a year ago my immune system is in a bad state - near constant flu / cold symptons. I appreciate endo is an immune compromising condition hence I'd hoped having excision and hysto for adenomyosis that my immune system might be improved. But no it's much worse - I've tried diet and supplements - echinacea, bio glucan - but not seen any real improvement. Any more suggestions?

I would recommend Echinacea everyday with vitamin c. Try and use antibacterial hand gel and hand wipes when traveling or in the office to ensue you don't catch anything from other people. I suffered from a low immune system and its a horrible feeling but by doing this it helped a lot. Drink at least 2L of water per day with echinacea. Hope this helps otherwise see your doctor .
