Next Monday, I’ll be having a total laparoscopic hysterectomy, oophorectomy, and bladder sling surgery. I wanted to avoid receiving general anesthesia twice, so I decided to have these procedures performed on the same day.
Like I’ve previously mentioned, I’m concerned about the emotional consequences of undergoing a hysterectomy. I’ve been reading about how hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help tremendously, with both physical and emotional symptoms.
Two years ago, I was having multiple hot flashes per day. My primary care physician prescribe a low dose of hormone replacement therapy as a treatment. It was effective; however, my ENT stated that HRT was contraindicated with having a subglottic stenosis. Therefore, I discontinued the HRT.
