Hi, I am 41 years old and I have just had my ovaries removed. I had Zalodex for 2 years before this. I am currently taking Tamoxifen and may change to AI.


I am concerned about my bones, heart, and overall health with the removal of the ovaries and not being able to take hormonal therapies. I would like to look after myself, and hope for suggestions of suppliments that I can take in the situation I am in ?


I am thinking of Evening Primrose, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin D and calcium, but not sure if they are too much and if they are suitable for me ? I am also not sure if there are any hormons in the suppliments ?

Any advice / suggestions / thoughts will be very much appreciated.
