Ladies last October I had a hysterectomy, yayyyyy! However the consultant left my ovaries, so, I dont really know, even roughly when I will officially enter the menopause.

I am perimenopausal I know that, but the actual menopause it’s self, not sure. Anyone else had this?

Souxi, rest of you, including the ones that aren’t on here because to me its just as important for you guys as well, this also goes for the age as well, and beyond,

Hmm beyond all good/bad for you/them, interesting, middle of the road, okay, understandable, and WOW.  This also goes for the age difference as well. 

Basically, here I thought that was mixed group of ages, but its far from that.  Even through that I’m only a generation back from you guys.  Well at least from whom I interacted with.

At the same time my opinions on this and beyond are one of my blog entries regarding of this.  Well, one of them has no opinion attached to it because at that particular time didn’t have more opinion beyond other one that also opinion with it as well.  Basically, my opinion is for both of them.That I did well over couple/few years back.  Of course to me its still relevant today as it was when I 1st did.

This is the one without the opinion

No Easy Choices on Breast Reconstruction

https://jessicaabrunowaybeyondfedup.wordpress.com/2013/05/21/no-easy-choices-on-breast-reconstruction/

Have I praised Ms Jolie for this, but at the same time I don’t.  Basically, I found theres more risks then benefits for having this done.  Including BRAC II and all of the other testing thats out there for both cancers because my results that I have a risk for breast cancer, but no risks for ovarian.  Even though I know thats theres history of breast cancer on my mother’s family and one of her doctors has recommend it to her to get it done.  At the same time she does indeed has stage IV ovarian cancer, survive it, and etc along those lines.  Would love if Ms Jolie of it would have done more of though learning and researching in regards to all of this. Not just in this particular area, but others and etc.  Because I do know for a fact theres even more to all of this. It includes men, children, babies, and etc.  Especially, looking into both the alternative, mainstream, and etc lifestyles.  Including all living things and etc.

No Easy Choices on Breast Reconstruction

While a recent article by Angelina Jolie about her mastectomy and reconstruction raised awareness, it may have left the impression that the surgeries are quick and easy procedures, some doctors fear.

https://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/05/20/no-easy-choices-on-breast-reconstruction/?smid=pl-share&_r=0

Think thats it for now.

Thank you, again, in advance.

Yours truly,

Hey Souxi smile MIL had the same thing done. She entered menopause early so they removed the uterus but left the ovaries.

I know she had real problems with lethargy and hormone shifts when she pins on the ovaries being left behind, but I’m more inclined to believe it’s because of her appalling diet!

Has the dr offered any hormone support? If not, there are a variety of herbal supplements you can use to great effect. I’d rather know more about your general health before I give a proper suggestion, but evening primrose oil is very gentle but effective and has few side effects.

Oh, and Annelee, please tell me to shut up if you like, but if I remember correctly you come from an Asian background?

I’m curious about your diet in relation to the menopause. There’s a lot of evidence that a traditional Japanese or Chinese diet is far superior for women, particularly around menopause because of the consumption of natural oestrogen mimicking foods. Things like Miso, Tofu, Soy/ Soybeans. Is this the kind of diet you have?

I was reading an article a while back which showed that in China and Japan it’s rare for women to have the severe reactions to menopause that western women have; the mood swings, the non-stop hot flushes etc. Curious!!

Evening Primrose Oil is meant to be very effective for the Menopause. You will have to consult your doctor to check it does not clash with other medications you take. Diet does play a big part in menopause symptoms. I’d say a healthy, balanced diet will help with the tiredness and hot flushes. There is no complete treatment but it can be made easier to deal with.
