I am a young 52, had a complete hysterectomy and went on the Vivelle dot. 5 weeks post surgery, I was admitted to critical care with pulmonary embolisms. I was taken off all estrogen and have been fighting to regain my life for the past year with no success. Multiple doctors, nutritionists, acupuncturists, massage, multiple opinions, and yet no progress. I don't feel or look like myself, no libido, skin and accelerated aging, hair loss, increased depression, loss of motivation and no energy, my marriage and career are also suffering since everything is now a chore. Are there any suggestions for help? I have been recommended to take a testosterone and DHEA compound but am concerned how that act in my body with no estrogen. Please help.
