OK, so I know some will find this controversial. I've actually had breast cancer aged 44, with chemo induced menopause. Four years on, I am incredibly depressed about the state of my rapidly ageing skin, to the extent I can't function. I also need 10 hours sleep every night since the cancer, though the menopause and lack of estrogen may also be a factor. I'm seeing an oncologist next week to ask for estrogen (with possibly some sort of in situ progesteron as I still have my ovaries etc). I have read studies saying estrogen isn't the risk factor by itself for recurrence. I'm wondering. Anyone out there who went on estrogen a couple of years after the menopause and notice any improvement to their skin? I am beyond depressed to the point of 'bad' thoughts. Oh and I've had antidepressants previosuly and seen a psycologist, with no improvement.
