Firstly apologies as I’m sure this has been posted a million times before but when did you all start experiencing symptoms of menopause after treatment?
Bit of my story, I was diagnosed 1b2 in December and had a hysterectomy in Feb but kept my ovaries due to young age (I’m only 30) I then went onto preventative radiotherapy and brachytherapy. My nurse wasn’t exactly clear about when or if I’d start menopause.
I’m just over 3 weeks out of treatment now and I’m not sure but I feel like maybe I’m starting to get some symptoms. I’ve had a few hot flushes, find it difficult to sleep some nights and have had quite a lot of itchiness down there, it’s hard to tell if these are treatment or menopause related.
I’m going to book a GP appointment, but is there anyway they can tell? From a blood test maybe?
Sorry for all the questions I don’t really have any older women I can ask who have had natural menopause, my mum had early menopause due to breast cancer treatment. She had to just deal with it though as she couldn’t take HRT due to the type of cancer. Both my nans died a long time ago as well.
And advice or anything would be appreciated:)
