Reoccurring UTIs after ovary removal

Posted , 4 users are following.

Ladies... I have read blogs as I didn’t  know whether this was just happening to me. I have never posted before. I had haemorrhegic cysts that decided to burst on November 3 2017 which in turn I had to have both ovaries removed 9 weeks ago today. I had my womb removed 4 years ago, best thing ever after suffering for years and years from endometriosis. Since this op 9 weeks ago where I had been on oramorph for 11 weeks and lost 9kg.... I have suffering panic and anxiety, reoccurring UTIs, the smell of urine is like a hamster cage and the tiredness is ridiculous. From being a fitness instructor, I can’t do anything but walk and am in bed by 9pm. I am fatigued and fed up. Should all this have subsided by now? Am I alone in all of this??? Am I just the “unlucky one?” I am on oestrogen 1mg... would be grateful for any responses.

    Sorry to hear your still in pain, I would see my doctor, as a fitness instructor you might have pulled something causing this pain. For UTI maybe you need to stick with ?? cotton underwear’s and workout bottoms. Lots of water I’m sure you know. Anxiety and pain need to be pinned point has to what makes you get that way, is it a Person,season, or location then see a Therapist. Good luck to you. Stay strong and always seek help, it’s out there. Your not alone! Blessings

      Thanks Liz. I haven’t had any pain at all. I was referring to being a fitness instructor prior to the operation. Since the  operation, I can only do walking. I was more concerned about the UTIs . 6th one in 9 weeks and thrush and tiredness. Was this still to be expected?

      You must be feeling terrible! Maybe your oestrogen dose needs upping now you have no ovaries which would have still been producing a little. See your doctor and get treatment for the uti’s and thrush. You shouldn’t be feeling this way. Take care

I have found it wonderful for keeping uti at bay. Sounds like yoiu are low in oestrogens now you got no ovaries. Vsginal estrogen is excellent for vasginal health.good luckx

    Are you also sweating like a waterfall, for no reason, happened to me post ovaries removal during hysterectomy, but for me happened in hospital almost immediately, scared the devil out of them as I lost veins and drip sites 17 sites in nine days is beyond a joke, and constantly soaking wet, so much so I was making puddles on the floor, I joke about it now but it was a nightmare.

    Finally in the hospital found a Dr who seemed to know what she was talking about, started me off on 1200mg of ostergoen replacement, if I remember correctly, sweats stopped almost immediately, but told very strongly that I could not remain on that level every 3 months the local GP had to find a new tablet for me, 900mg, 750mg, 500mg, 350mg, and so on, and stepped down very slowly over two years or so, till am taking no ostegeon now.

    ​Best wishes I does get better.
