I'm 26 years old and had a total abdominal hysterectomy in November.Due to aggressive pre cancerous cells. I am concerned because my hair has started to come out in the handfuls when i shower, I also don't seem to have any moisture in it no matter what I do or try. Is this normal ? Even my scalp is dry, I have never had this problem before.I have tried oil treatments, Mane and Tail, Salon Brand treatments, everything I can think of. What else is there for me to do? I have only been married for three years and wouldn't mind continuing to be appealing to my husband.
I am from a very small town and my gyno. actually transferred so my hysto was done by a temp until we receive the new doctor so i havent even had my post op appointment . They did leave one ovarie and said that there was a chance it would have to be removed later on bc it was very scarred up. Doctor said it was worth a shot tho. I have tried to make appointments to see my doctor but bc of being so shorthanded it will be another few months before they can fit me into the schedule. Lovley perks of a small town. I've considered finding another doctor but the closest is almost an hour away. I am not on any estrogen or hormones and im begining to think that would helpView Thread
