My cns nurse returned my call. I informed her of my symptoms and also of the lack of sensation in vag'Gina's beana', informing the nurse that its not functioning the way she should
Cns nurse told me to relax, stop trying to get it working and wait and see as rads still continue to work for 8 wks after the last zap.
Still stressed as GINA'S BEANA WORKED LAST WEEK!
I informed cns nurse I made my gp give me hrt on Thursday (didn't take it until Saturday) as I can't bare the amount of night sweats, flushes and SHE-HULKNESS anymore.
Cns nurse was surprised as gp's don't normally want to hand it out as they are worried and rather wait for oncologist/gynae to suggest it. But she was happy the GP had. I told her my gp was throwing it at me. I did ask whether I should have a blood test and the GP said "no" just take it.
Cns nurse said that gp's are normally very apprehensive to give out without oncologist and gyne have said so due to feeling out of their depth of understanding or knowledge.
I said I was close to killing my family for just being in thr same room as me.
I asked nurse whether it would make a difference if I took it now or in 2 months time? she said no, it would just be good to relay this conversation with the gynae to make sure I have the right one, But for now to keep taking.
Cns nurse Said because ive been medically put into menopause and the rads bring it on like a bull, it's a lot more stressful and side effects are a hell of a lot worse than normal ladies going into it that haven't had rads.
I'm wondering if I should of asked for the patch as I've read patches sink in better as they don't have to pass through the liver first. But a friend that was in an early menopause said they are useless as they fall off in water.
Again the nurse said that it might take 8/10 weeks for the symptoms normally to settle and that's why some people wait. I said "wait? Wait for that amount of time? I was about to remove my children's heads and husbands testicles - one by one... I can't wait that long! It's bad enough I've drenched in my own sweat and need to change 2 times and wake at least 6 times because I'm so hot"
Before this phone call I emailed in my gp surgery and also asked for testosterone gel, quoting in rather detail the reason. Haha
Bet the receptionists don't know where to look! Good job I don't have to see them for a while!
I'm still hoping my ovaries are built of stronger stuff and this is a mere hiccup.
Tried to talk it over with my husband last night and even have a feel as I'm worried the bean might sink into my body without a trace ever again. He refused and told me he didn't want to have this conversation. Got into a massive fight and told him he doesn't want to support me physically or mentally. I then went and spent without his knowledge quite a lot on different vibrators and lube. If he won't mentally or physically support, his wallet can instead! Every week he chooses not to "help me out"... I'll buy a new one in a different colour and shape and see how long it takes for him to notice!
