I had a total hysterectomy 5 weeks ago, because of a uterus prolaps. I am 56 yrs old. I told my dr that I wanted to keep my ovaries, since I did not have a canser, already had a C-125 canser test,and no canser in my family. He said he still strongly reccomended them to be removed, because of my age. He kind of talked me into making up my mind,fast 2 days before my scheduled operation. I said ok. And had a total hysterectomy. Now I am so sorry that I did that. He did not give me any hormones, until 10 days after the surgery. Today I have pain in my fingers, and I have been crying a lot. I am still not well, no energy,and dull pain. If I only would have listen to mt inner self. I knew what was right for me. My question is,what can I do to help my body make up for the hormones my ovaries made for me ?
