Problems after ovaries removed? Hi Girls

Has anyone had their ovaries removed, and if so what kind of problems have you experienced. I just need to make sense of the symptoms that Im having at the moment. My list includes the following:

VERY weepy, feelings of being helpless, VERY vague feelings of not quite being in the moment, forgetful, not being able to take in information, nausea during the flush, wanting to run away, my mind feels ‘tired’, problems with sleep, going to the loo during the night more…

I had mine removed last August, and apart from the odd hot flush thought that I had got away with it, but the past 2 weeks have been really terrible. If you had suddenly had the above could you PLEASE let me know how you dealt with the sudden onset.

After reading on it it seems like Im just going to have to get on with it, I cant have any hormone replacement, and when I started my diet I thought that I was doing the right thing, but I read that there are phytoestrogens in fruit and veg, my mind feels like its going to burst.

I really am tired of the whole thing.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Debbie the loss of confidence and concentration plus feelings of panic are all menopausal- your prob is that instead of getting them gradually you’re having the lot at max strength.
You’ll adjust. Meantime patience and calm are needed. If it’s too horrible a trip to GP for Prozac or something similar would help you through nasty patch.Best wishes, dilly
