Back 16 years ago I had a hysterotomy removing both my cervix and uterus. Being that I was 30 the Dr. didn't want to take my ovaries at that time. 4 1/2 months ago I had both ovaries removed due to an abnormal cyst and I have since gained 20lbs, my mood is terrible (swinging from emotional to angry to just feeling hollow) and sex drive is non-existent.
My eating habits haven't changed as I have had gastric sleeve and am limited to my intake of food. I had been maintaining my weight for the last 2 1/2-3 years. Now having the 20lbs show up so quickly and unexpectedly is leaving me discouraged.
The Dr. put me on estrogen patches and has even upped the dose, but I still feel horrible and not right, not like myself.
Has anyone experienced anything similar? I know moods and sex drive are common.... but weight gain was something that has me baffled.
