I am 43 and I had a total abdominal hysterectomy on Monday 12/19/16 and they gave me a hormone shot Tuesday evening and started me on Estradil .01 patch on Wednesday.  I changed it yesterday.  How long does it generally take to get leveled out with these patches.  I have no appetite and my stomach feels jittery.  I think it's too much estrogen, my doctors office said it's too low. I have read that some people function better with lower estrogen.  They say not to focus so much on such a high estrogen level, but as to how you feel.  Some positive feedback would be great.
