Thanks for your replies.
I spoke to my CNS about herbal remadies and HRT start date. She advised that you have to wait approx 4-6 weeks post-op to minimise DVT risk.
As both HRT and herbal remedies take a few months to kick in she advised to contact my GP and get started on HRT first as they sometimes need to tweak the dosage to get it right. (Oestrogen only as womb has been removed).Once the HRT doseage is settled, if I am still having symptoms then to start adding in some of the herbal remadies - that way I know what is working for me.
Herbally she advised the following
Black Cohosh - mood swings / depression / weepiness
Evening Primrose Oil - Breast pain / mood swings
Sage tea or tablets - Hot flushes / sweats
Isoflavones (Soya) such as Red Clover, Liquorice or Alfalfa - hot flushes / sweats.
Also look at introducing Linseed / Tofu / Soya milk / Roasted soya nuts into your diet. Obviously check with your GP before taking anything.
GP appointment booked for Monday so fingers crossed - knackered this week due to lack of sleep!!
