So after many sleepless nights due to the pain of endo & the worry I finally had my hysterectomy last wednesday, including removal of my ovaries & tubes. I must admitt I am in nowhere near as much pain as i thought i would be & i am feeling more positive & optemistic than i have done in years so hopefully it was the right thing to do.
My problem now is that the consulant wants me to take Hrt due to me being 38 & the risks of bone disease etc & has perscribed me Elleste Solo, which I do not want to take due to the risk of it causing the endo to come back & even the information leaflet inside the pack says it shouldn''t be used if a medical history of endo not to mention the side effects listed on the internet. When i questioned my consultant he just said the benefits outway the risks (i wonder if he gets a nice bonus for using their products). I have been told to try black cohosh for the hot sweats etc (which i haven't yet had luckily) but i was wondering if anyone knows what there is available for the bone problems either herbal or endo friendly hrt .
