I have read that HRT causes cancer, I am very confused because I am about to have a full hysterectomy in about 3 weeks due to endometriosis stage IV that is spread all over my pelvic area and now increasingly on my bowels which has left me with no quality of life, after 2 laparoscopies and hormone pills ,2x coils to manage the pain and the disease it seams it doesn't want to leave me alone. So the only option that my doctor from central London suggested was to remove my ovaries and uterus and try to clean out all endometriosis adhesions especially on the wall of my bowel which unfortunately has down a loop 3 x , ( how that happened I don't know!) But what I am confused about is HRT after my hysterectomy. I would like to have option which give me the least side effects possible.
I feel very anxious about everything because I have the feeling that I will be DEWOMANED and also afraid that I will not be pain free as I wish so much. I'm don't have children , only 40 years but if I am not able to have children of my own , maybe one adopt.
Thank you , any advises are most welcomed ...pros & cons
