I had a full hysterectomy 3 weeks ago due to suffering from stage 4 Endo for 25 years, I am currently struggling to get HRT I’ve been told by the hospital that I must go on it due to being 44 and the complications I could suffer if I don’t.
The issue I’m having is that my doctors are telling me that they are not experts in this field so don’t know what to put me on and the hospital are saying it needs to be a combined HRT to start with due to the Endo but it’s the doctors responsibility to prescribe me the correct one not the hospital!
I’m on the high risk list for Breast Cancer as I lost my mum In her thirty’s which isn’t helping, as they seem to be very concerned about this even though I get tested yearly.
Currently I’m going around In a circle, so was just wondering if anyone else had experienced this?
Having major surgery, was not a decision I took lightly due to my age but Endo had destroyed my chances of being a Mum 😢 so I took the decision to do this to get my life and my relationship with my husband back (he has been my rock through this but we all know what our partners go though living with Endo without going into details) had I known that I would come up against another hurdle I would have made sure this was sorted before I had the Op!
Sorry for the rant...just feeling frustrated that I’ve spent so many years fighting against Endo and now I’m doing it again to get the right HRT 😔
Any advise will be great fully received.
