While I can't run for my life, I will bike and swim for my life. I MUST keep my weight under control as with menopause I am at increase risk for heart disease. Further, this could all be related to my menopause. The doctor is seeing signs of osteoporosis. He said he just doesn't see this extent of injury in women my age with my stature. I am going to be regimen in my hormone and vitamin therapy daily. I am also going to look into calcium pills, and Boniva (think Sally Field commercials). When I go back to the gynecologist, I am going to ask about tweaking my hormones again. (I called today and they are probably going to order a bone density scan to rule out or confirm osteoporosis)
I have having a hard day emotionally. I feel like, while I am glad I made the decision to have an oopherectomy, and I do feel it saved my life, I am frustrated with the after effects. I am frustrated with not being able to do the activities I want to do.
