About 3 months ago I had major excision surgery for my endometrios which involved a full hysterecomy (with ovaries removed) and a bowel resection. I have a temporary ileostomy at the moment so will be having another op in a few months time.
I have been on Tibolone for about a year now as was on it with Zoladex as well. I get on really well with it but have been having quite a bit of hair loss. My consultant had written to my GP to recommend I try Evorel 50 patches but this is an oestrogen only HRT...
I have been under the impression that with endometriosis you should have a combined HRT in case any has been left behind (I have stage 4 and quite severe- they think they got all of it but there is always the risk of trace amounts being left)....
I'm a bit anxious to go on an oestrogen only HRT in case it makes any endo left behind thicken up with the progesterone to help thin it and think there is risk of it turning cancerous also.
Has anyone else had a full hysterectomy and what HRT are you on? How have you found it? Wondering if I should contact my consultant to ask for the combi HRT
