Which HRT

Hi ladiesI have an appointment tomorrow with my GP to be prescibed HRT. My CNS has advised that I only a need oestrogen only type as my lining will most likey be damaged from the Radio. But my GP has said to go on combined as I still have a uterus (I haven't had surgery) and it should used for it's purpose..?Any help would be so appriciated!Thanks xxx

July 2012 diagnosed stage 2b aged 27

5 weeks chemo/rads 3 x brachy

December 4 PET/CT MRI and CT scans all came back inconclusive

April 2013 - Polyps found during check up

May 23 - Booked for removal of Polyps, Cystoscopy and coloscopy to investigate

June - Polyps removed and found to be non cancerous - woohoo!


Hi there!..... I'd b inclined to listen to ur CNS rather than GP. I know ur consultant can issue ur HRT, so u don't have to use ur GP. I know u still have ur uterus but the fact that treatment has pushed u into menopause means that it won't be functioning hormonally. I was issued HRT that was meant for women with naturally occurring menopause (who still have a uterus even although I had a rh) & I ended up with bad cramps like period pains which freaked me right out thinking it was a re-occurrence. It's so important to get the prescription right. I would trust the specialist in the field. Good luck.xxx
