My hysterectomy was eight weeks ago now and I feel I am doing well. I also had anterior and posterior repair for prolapse. Overall, I feel I have missed many side effects of surgical menopause that I feared. I did have about a three hour surgery and a lot of strong pain medicine afterward. I do have hot flashes but not struggling with many other issues until recently. I am 48 and occasionally, before the surgery did have my moments of memory lapse but not what I feel I am experiencing now. I seem much more forgetful since the surgery even forgetting what day it is (Saturday) or what my kids are doing this weekend, even though they say they have told me. I have to make a list for every trip to town and it is starting to concern me a little. Could it be from the anesthesia or related to having the ovaries out? I am trying not to think I have Alzheimer's but am scaring myself and then I am just more stressed. I haven't made mistakes at work but am worried about the level of forgetfulness with short term things and retaining information. I feel a constant need to look at the calendar to make sure I know what the heck day it is and what I have coming up!! I haven't put the ice cream in the cabinet yet. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks!
