I think you all probably know that I had an oophrectomy abut a year and a half ago. The weird thing is that my sister had one shortly afterwards, for a different reason to mine. She also ended up with a tooth access right after too, so I think she’s just a big copycat.
I haven’t had a chance to talk to her about it since, and since I’m having so much trouble with finding an HRT that works I thought I’d ask if she was taking any and, if so, which one. It just so happens she’s not. The reason she isn’t is that they discovered she has an abnormality on her liver (effectively a birthmark). She’s older enough than me to make not taking HRT acceptable from a bone density point of view (by 4 years, the cut of is around age 50), she says she hasn’t been too badly affected by menopause symptoms, so she’s relatively lucky, as surgical meno can be brutal. Makes me wonder if this HRT lark is worth the trouble, but there’s no telling. I could be a million times worse with no hormones, but it has certainly given me something to think about.
