Hi...I had a complete hysterectomy at age 52 and am now 61. I was never on HRT, and did well. Recently I have been experiencing hot flashes and lots of tears, and just feel yucky (not horribly ill at all.) These symptoms 'seem' like what I went through during menopause. Could they be...again? Two other facts, don't know if they are relevant but who knows? I got married 7 months ago after 22 years of being single (and no sexual activity). Could hormones get stirred up from that? Also, I am almost 200 pounds less now than I was during menopause. The weight loss occurred 8 years ago, but am really in quite a 'different' body now.
Thanks so much! I am seeing my Pcp in the morning. 2 things I forgot to include...I also have 'cold' flashes but not as often, and I do have a benign thyroid mass that is being followed for yearly ultra sounds.View Thread
