Hi Mam,
I am trying to explain in detail about my mom's health problem below, please guide her to get out of all these problems so that she can live rest of her life with happiness.
My mom is 45 years old, height 5ft, weight 66 kg, married at her 19 and two children with 24 and 22 year old. Five years back she had undergone to a surgery (Not sure it may called as Hysterectomy) which resulted in removal of her Uterine. Before that she used to face heavy bleeding and lot of pain at her abdomen. A strange problem that is also raised exactly 1 month of her surgery is if she felt some weakness or heavy acidity problem or increase in blood pressure has caused her a kind of stress and psychological feeling that she is going to die or some thing is going to happen her etc.. Doctor has tested and confirmed that fibroid s are there in Uterine and they needs to be removed. He did not considered the anxiety problem. At the time of operation based on the size and other factors doctor has removed Uterine and after the surgery doctor showed us the size of the fibroid, it was like the size which will be fixed in our two hands. We were very worried about her anxiety problem that she used to get like increase in BP, heavy sweating, tension, increase in heart beat and shivering etc. We thought after the operation that problem may be reduced, no after few months of operation her anxiety problem did not reduced. If she heard any negative news, death news, too much tired then the tension is getting increased and feeling shivered, some thing is gonna happen to her. We also consulted psychological specialist. He gave few medicine with that she could able to avoid that feeling with heavy sleep. The medicine are like decreased her intelligence at that period. After some courses we have stopped those psychological related medicine.

These are the previous situations she came across. Current condition of my mom is if she work a bit more (like regular in previous) getting weakness, she is not having much physical and mental strength too. She is also having problem with gas trouble. If she eats any food related to acidic problems then unusually her stomach will be full with gas and that will be pressurized to heart some times left hand, neck and back too. With that she thinks that she may having the problem of heart attack. Even some kind of gas is also forming if her mental condition is not good. We have visited gastroenterologist s and local doctors many times. But no result simply they say no problem for you just take good food. Another side she feels very tired, stressed and increased in blood pressure very frequently. at that time she feels very depressed about her health condition as she cant be normal like others. Some doctors told that its related to harmonic imbalance and that doctor would have not removed your Uterine as its very important in hormone balance of women life. Then again she is depressed that i lost an important organism and its creating many problems in me. Another thing if she did not eat on time two things happens immediately one, she feels giddiness and very weak. In few days she feels that she is good and energetic then simply she dances to 3 five minutes songs continuously with out rest happily. I would like to see my mom in this kind of happy mood. Because at the time of not felling well she always thinks that why all these are happening to me and what will happen to my children and husband if some thing happens to me. One more point to inform you that she has faced much psychological stress in dealing with money during vehicle business and we have faced many problems at that time. During that period my mom took alopathic medicine continuously for 5 years which some doctors says it has decreased the resistance power too. By gods grace currently we do not have any economic problems. These are the issues that are facing by my mom. Thanks a loot for your patience in reading to all these. I would like to see my mom happier and healthier. Please suggest me in clearing the discrepancies of my mom and provide her a better and healthy life. Thanks alot.

Hi vijaya G,

Thank you for posting on behalf of your mother-- that's very thoughtful of you. Unfortunately, after a hysterectomy, women can sometimes go through what is known as surgical menopause. This can include psychological issues such as depression (anxiety, stress, and sleeplessness can all factor in together) and it can also cause hot flashes, vaginal dryness, etc. 

Sometimes hormone replacement therapy can help alleviate some of the symptoms-- your mom may not have necessarily have to have been treated with an anti-depressant but maybe some type of estrogen replacement instead to help balance out the hormones. If this is something she is willing to consider then please have her address it with her doctor.

Wishing you and your family the best,
