Ive just got back from seeing GP as wanted to make sure he'd prescribe hrt with my family history before I finally agree to have ovaries out. He's been great and given me so much more info and guidance than the hospital. He also said at my age they really wouldn't take them out if not necessary and my consultant is specialist in female hormones and endo and has written many papers worldwide and if he says that in my case it would be better to go ahead I should go ahead. With my mum having gynae cancer its another reason to go for it. He explained hrt and said he'd be quite happy for me to take 15 years at a high dose and at 55 reduce down gradually into my 60s/70s as estrogen important. He also said if im not given anything at hospital to get my hubby to call in and hell precribe something so i dont have time for sudden drop to occur. Whether its his caring nature and the fact he doesn't rush me out. I was able to spill all my fears about the op and after and he then put medical advice to them all. Feeling so much more positive about what will be difficult time. just counting down the days now. Eek
