! am 47 and I had a total hysterectomy for endometriosis 6 years ago and have continually had health problems since, mainly minor infections which seem to have increased in the last year so that I am almost constantly taking antibiotics. I also feel extremely tired, have chest pains and breathlessness occasionally, cannot take HRT apart from oestrogen cream, low dose. I suffer bloating and discomfort abdominally. I have had various investigations of the urinary tract as i have had frequent urinary infections and no problem has been found, now I am wondering whether it could be a bowel infection, as i did have scar tissue on the bowel a few years ago, has anyone had similar problems post menopause? I have very little support at home and at work, I think due to the continuing nature of the symptoms but infections can be very worrying, especially when antibiotics dont seem to work.
