1st signs

So today marks 4 weeks post last brachytherapy and nearly 6 weeks weeks post chemo. This week I’ve noticed an increase in discharge in general that’s also pink during use of dilator and afterward. Also my boobs have felt slightly sore and feel a little swollen. Just like early pregnancy. Could this be the start of menopause?
Coincidentally today was the date given by my Oncologist to start HRT and so I have.

Could well be - not nice, I know. I have been perimenopausal, menopausal and post menopausal for over 10 years and I think I’m pretty much done now only after the cancer treatment and my normally huge boobs have shrunk with my weight. I’m starting to feel normal. Menopause is not fun and I’m glad you’re getting help and the HRT should make a difference.

But there are other ladies here who have been through the same enforced menopause and I’ll butt out now :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: xxx
