Hi - I had a complete hysterectomy in April of this year. I am hoping someone out there can give me some advice regarding dry skin and muscle tone loss. I am 30lbs heavier than I was when I got married, but prior to my hysterectomy my legs/muscle tone was always there, despite my weight..since the surgery all muscle tone is gone in my thighs, my skin is incredibly loose and much more wrinkled ...all muscle tone is gone and I'm incredibly upset. I tried the estrogen patch but had an allergic reaction. I am lucky that I do not have any hot flashes, just mild night sweats at times...other than that I am good. Please tell me what I can do to prevent this loss of muscle and my face aging before I am due. I am only 46. Thank you.
