Hi, I had major abdominal hysterectomy a week ago. Came home from hospital yesterday. Consultant had prescribed me 1.25 g twice a day of HRT. (Premarin.) I have been taking 100 mg of Setraline (Zoloft) for the past few years for PMT with great results. My hysterectomy involved removing my ovaries, uterus, appendix and the fatty lining of my bowel. I don't know if I should continue to take the Sertraline stil? I haven't taken it while I was in hospital but know just coming straight off it is dangerous too. Also I'm in so much pain my GP today has prescribed me Codeine for the pain but my consultant has just prescribed me more Tramadol for the pain?! My GP said taking Tramadol with Setrsline is dangerous. I'm so confused. I was on oral morphine and Tramadol at the hospital till I was discharged yesterday and they only gave me paracetamol and Ibuprofen then which haven't touched the pain at all ( hence my partner ringing today and asking for more pain relief.) I'm 46 and the hysterectomy had put me straight into the menopause and I don't know what to take for the best. I'm so tearful ( which is not like me at all but I realise this may be still effects from the op). Can anyone please help??
