I am 34 years old now and had a hysterectomy 10 years ago due to ovarian-cancer. Ever since Ive been coping and struggling with my general health. The hormonal intake was difficult to get right. I was young and trusted the doctors but no one semed to know how it SHOULD be. Well, ten years on I happened to go away to India where my hormonal plasters(?) kept falling off and I had severe symptoms and difficulty with the health. Suddenly everything seems obvious but can it be this easy? All these years I had different levels of the SAME( very disabling) symptoms: a vague but strong sense of illness-totally tired and feling like Ive got fever and a flu. Hot-cold flashes, weird pulse-always too fast but deep down I am overly tired and CANNOT SETTLE(or sleep thoroughly), moodswings, feeling of detachment-like Im somebody else. I am so worried that these "episodes" cannot be fixed, because doctors havent caught this yet...Should it really be up to me the patient to tell when the hormone-level is right? Shouldnt doctors be more than able? EVEN if the estrogen is "ok" and testosteron low. KINDLY/ Ulrika, Stockholm, Sweden
