Since I did get a full hysterectomy, my doctor had warned me that I would be going through menopause soon after. I wasn’t sure how soon after, but in the last couple of weeks I have been experiencing mood swings. And in the last two days, I started getting “hot flashes”. For those of you who don’t know what menopause is here’s a definition from the Mayo Clinic.
I have to admit that on top of everything else I’m dealing with, I have to also deal with this…It’s a bit of a struggle. My oncologist can’t even prescribe estrogen to help me relive some of my symptoms. He says that giving me estrogen, even natural estrogen, will feed the cancer. So I will have to be dealing with this with no help!
Hopefully meditating will help…Does Anyone have suggestions on how to cope?
