I am 54 years old and 3 1/2 months post hysterectomy with ovaries left in. For a few years I have suffered with digestive problems which I'm sure are menopause related. Some times I feel like I have too much stomach acid and other times like there isn't enough. My stomach feels full easily and it feels like the food just sits there in a lump. Had some tests done which were normal about 1 1/2 years ago. Finally found a GI doctor who actually acknowledged gastro problems exist in menopausal women! My family doctor and gyn Doctor both say they don't recognize the connection. Next week I'm havin a gastric emptying study and in two weeks an endoscopy and colonoscopy. I hope and pray these are all ok.
Anyway...sorry about all the info.....my question is...does anyone know if taking HRT helps with the digestive issues? I am one of the lucky ones who doesn't really have hot flashes. I do suffer from anxiety, tiredness and when I don't feel well I start feeling such doom and gloom...like my life is over.
This whole "to do or not to do" HRT is very confusing to me. I do know that if I do, it would be bio identicals.
thanks so much for your help with this concern. These message boards are a lifesaver!
