Hysterectomy and headaches

Common Questions and Answers about Hysterectomy and headaches


Avatar n tn There is a post on here about bleeding after hysterectomy. Check it out. My hyst was 17 months ago, and for the last 6 months i am experiencing cramps bleeding and pain in pelvic area. My hyst was for adenomyosis and endometiosis. i asked doc if it could affect my cervix, they said no. so i kept it. Surgey was done laproscopically, and now i believe that pieces of my diseased uterus where left behind and is growing on my cervix. I read about this on the internet.
Avatar n tn Hi! No kidding you're on the right side!! (there's a story there for later about the hyster site). Well two threads you can check out if you have strong eyes and lots of time...."hormones after hysterectomy" 04/13 and "Mary53 or DebiR...help with hormones" also the same date I believe. You will find other references to other posts as you read too. For what it is worth.... I started worrying about this waaay before my hyster in Feb.
Avatar f tn Hello, These symptoms are due to hormone deficiency after oopherectomy. In my opinion you should consult a gynecologist and start with hormone replacemenr therapy.You can also take Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators like Femarelle which derived from a botanical source (Phytoserms) or phytoestrogens which have an estrogenic effect on the body and therefore create a moderated estrogenic effect.
Avatar n tn I had a total hysterectomy 11 years ago. Gradually my dosage has been reduced and I'm currently not taking anything, by choice, rather than by my doctor's direction. It's been two weeks since my last pill and so far I have had no hot flushes, but I have had a constant dull headache. Must I take HRT the rest of my life or is it possible that I could go off the estrogens without experiencing hot flushes or headaches (historically I've not been able to do that) or with minimal side effects?
Avatar n tn stated that he truly cannot pinpoint the cause of these headaches and that the depakote will stop the signal for the headaches. He has prescribed it to start with 250 mgs. tid for the first week and 500 tid for 3 more weeks. My other Dr. suggested pamalor and midril. Do you have any advise on these drugs.their side effects of short term use.
1830047 tn?1321671393 Some people have found artificial sweeteners and/or gluten bring on their headaches. I've tested both for extended periods of time and neither one affect my headaches at all. Right now, I'm mostly only treating symptoms when they occur - anti nausea meds, pain meds, stay in a quiet, dark room, etc., etc. I do sometimes find that an ice pack on the back of my neck will help ease the pain some.
Avatar n tn I have had a series of symptoms ranging from aches and pains in my thighs, forearms and lower back, vision issues, and most recently, headaches that simply won't go away. I have had many MRI's which show 6 brain lesions within the left parietal lobe and posterior temporal lobe. My largest lesion measures 9mm. I also have another issue which I have never considered to be a part of the lesion senerio, until reading the comments of others.
Avatar f tn Hi MPANDE. I am 39 and will be 40 in June and just had a radical hysterectomy in January to treat cervical cancer. When I went into surgery my ovaries were producing a little too much estrogen to be exact so I had yet to experience even the first sign of menopause. Well because my body was used to having so much hormone when they took everything it essentially threw my body into shock. Or so they say. It's just funny you said you get headaches because that was my very first symptom.
Avatar f tn got worse 3 years ago when they found a pituitary tumor and last year found an aneurysm....had a hysterectomy when I was 28 and have been on HRT since. My headaches are so bad lately..I have menopauseal symptoms really bad and all the drs did was up my premarin which isn't doing anything. I am at my end with the pain....Help!!!!! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...I know if you use your pain meds to much you get rebounds but the pain won't let up.
Avatar f tn I had a partial hysterectomy (I still have my ovaries) 4 years ago. I have had headaches/migraines my whole life . Recently they have gotten worse. I have been diagnosed with sinusitis many, many times, I never really felt like that was the real answer. Lately my migraines are so terrible I am unable to even get out of bed without vommitting. I also developed brown spots on my face a year ago . I am concerned and really don't know where to start can you help me?
Avatar n tn I have been to specialist doctors and some of them have perscibed meds to me but they have awful side effects and dont do anything for my headaches. A few years ago I tried smoking pot, and at this time didnt have headaches very often. I smoked with friends maybe once a month and then after a while decided to quit and that was my desision untill a few weeks ago. I was at my friends house when I got a REALLY horid headache and he was like lets smoke a bowl that will make you feel beter.
Avatar n tn I had a complete hysterectomy approx 7 ears ago due to stage 4 Endomietriosis. After surgery my doctor started HRT and placed me on Premrin. However, we switched to Estradiol about a year ago due to financial issues. I also take Triamterene for water retention. I am starting to experience some symptoms such as sensations in my breasts (feels like my breasts are full, like my milk was dropping), hot flashes, headaches, loss of libido, anxiety, sudden tears, irritability, a little fatigue.
Avatar n tn dee26 I am 26 years old and just had total hysterectomy forr severe endometriosis and my doctor has given me hormones called Prometrium 200mg and vivelle-dot and those things gave me crazy mood swings so I took the patch off and stopped taking the prometrium. I have three little kids and I don't have time for the major mood swings and on top of that I run a daycare center. I just had my hysterectomy five weeks ago and I may have had five hot flashes all together.
237152 tn?1206654636 I just read your comment on this website today (2-9-13) and think I have found what I have been searching for. I had a partial hysterectomy 30+ years ago and my life and marriage went into a devastating tailspin a couple of years later. I found myself with a very strong sex drive and found myself cheating on my husband while at the same time wanting him to "rescue" me. I tried everything at the time: counseling, help with hormone issues.
Avatar n tn I am 42 and going tomorrow to book in for an hysterectomy, i have endo and have had numerous ops to remove this. On my last op 8 mnths ago they tld me i ca not have any more ops and i must have a hysterectomy and leave in my ovaries. I really do not know what to do, i have my mom, auntie and cousin who all have had one and 2 friends who have said it was the best thing they had (they had a total). I have been reading your posts and now im scared out of my brain with the does and donts.
Avatar n tn I was dismissed in regards to my pop issues for years and years...and granted thanks to endometriosis and hysterectomy with everything (including the ovaries) my pelvis will never be the same so I do my best...but do not be dismissed that your pop is not significant enough...had they listened to me from the beginning I may not have all the extra struggles...so keep looking for a dr. who will hear and help you! I have had to see 100's before finally getting to an okish place! Next...
Avatar n tn Well I be damn, I'm not the only hysterectomy-notwannabe out there. I'm 38 and I had a hysterectomy in Oct.07 , I still have both ovaries,but I have gained about 15 lbs since the surgery, there has to be something out there for us. I thought you would lose weight with the damn surgery,what is going on?
Avatar n tn I wonder if it really is true can you get pregnant and carry a healthy child after a total hysterectomy. My partner and I would love to do this after having to have a hysterectomy. If anyone is out there please help at least with information.
Avatar n tn My doctors suggestion was a laproscoptic surgery to remove the cyst and I asked about a hysterectomy and he agreed to do as I wished. I had my utereus removed along with the cystic ovary and the fallapian tube on that side. Upon my wish the doctor left the other ovary and tube and cervix. I was informed by him later that because the cyst ended up being an endometrioma caused by endometriosis starting that I might later have the same trouble on the other ovary.
Avatar f tn I wanted to do the natural thing so spent about $1000 with a holistic doctor who not only did the hormone testing but also suggested that I take about 5 different kinds of drops in a glass of water for allergies, headaches, and one even to help me sleep. The compounded medicine made the hot flashes worse and 6 months later I couldn't take it anymore.
Avatar f tn Is it common for spot bleeding after a partial hysterectomy. I had my hysterectomy back in July 2009 and this past month I had 2 incidents to where I was bleeding but not heavy.
142384 tn?1275504937 The bleeding still did not stop AND I started getting migrane headaches every few days. I was missing work and after about a month of headaches, my boss asked me to go back to the doctor. I stopped the pill but kept having migranes and kept bleeding. I had a pap smear, pelvic exam, internal ultrasound, external ultrasound, and all the doctor could come up with was that my uterus was enlarged. No tumors, no cysts, no fibroids.
601370 tn?1221408885 i have fibroids and polycystic ovaries, i am going to see a gynacologist in november, can i insist they do a hysterectomy? i am so down at the mo and think im aneamic (had a blood test yesterday) i am 38, have been steralised therefore wont be having more children. the thought of going another 12 odd years with my period problems haunt me and feel this op would be the best thing for me.
1087834 tn?1256650996 Please dont just have a hysterectomy,go on the hysterectomy site and see the alternatves.I had a hysterectomy and have since found out,there was other treatment available,please check it out.My doctor total me there was no treatment for fibroids but there is,if i had known this I would have never had my hysterectomy,take care.
Avatar n tn I am 35, and am considering hysterectomy for AUB. As far as I know there is no reason to remove my ovaries and since I probably have 15 years until menopause I can use the hormones. I was wondering if because of still having the ovaries which leads to the menstrual cycle does one still experience PMS? By PMS I mean the moodiness, bloating, constipation etc?
Avatar n tn I don't drink alcohol and only take the lowest dose of Premarin (due to a total hysterectomy) which my doctor is weening me off of. I have no past history of headaches and I never have these headaches during the daytime. I saw my family doctor 2 days ago and she scheduled a MRI for Monday and said it was urgent. She said she wants to rule out a tumor first and then go from there. Has anyone ever heard of having headaches only when you are asleep and always in the same spot?
622466 tn?1254461163 fever, cough, congested, headaches, tummy ache and diarrhea... It really *****..... we'll try to reschedule for next wk... I hope I get rid of everthing in a wk.... My doc gave Zyromax.... it's a 5 day medication and I hope it does the trick..... I mention to my doc about the hysterectomy... she said she didn't recommend at this point.... Because removing the uterus at this point can interfere with further findins of dysplasia or cancer..... so I'm just having the cone biopsy and pray....
Avatar f tn I now am having awful hot flashes again and terrible headaches daily. Being unable to take hormone replacement because of the cancer, my question is what can I do for this?
Avatar n tn I had a TOTAL HYSTERECTOMY 25 years ago (pan hysterectomy) I am 68 and have been having a vaginal odor and some clear discharge for about three months. I cannot see the discharge, but asm aware of the odor. Yesterday i bought tampons and inserted one last night. When I removed it this morning, it was bloody with bright red blood. Afer i removed the tampon, I got a bloody discharge. My gynecologist is out of her office untl Monday, so hope to find out something then.
Avatar n tn They are interrupting my life. The headaches are happening at least twice a week and sometimes up to four times a week. Sometimes they last for up to hours to days. I usually can tell one is about to happen and I really can't explain how I know, but I feel it. The headache is at the top of my head and at the temple areas of both sides. The headaches are so bad that Lortab hasn't phased them. One doctor thought it may be a pinched nerve or migraines. I am beginning to be worried about them.
