HRT dilemma. Help!
I had my RH 6 months ago. I wasn't put on HRT straight away as I had my surgery at the Royal Marsden & they don't do HRT so they referred me to my local hospital. It was 4 months before I got an appt & in that time I started getting hot flushes & night sweats etc so I started taking supplements. Due to complete incompetence from my local hospital I am only now actually being prescribed HRT. My dilemma is my hot flushes seem a lot less than they were & I guess manageable & in myself I feel fine after 6 months. But I think HRT would be beneficial for my long term health as discussed with my oncologist & gynae as I'm 45. I'm worried if the HRT doesn't agree with me & I stop taking it after a while I will be hit with menopause all over again & the horrid hot flushes etc. I kind of don't want to mess with me feeling OK as I am but I kind of want to try it as it might make me feel even better. But it might make me feel worse.
Any advice? Has anyone started HRT after a period of time in menopause? Did you regret starting it? Should I just carry on as I am if I feel OK? I just don't know! Sorry for the rambling!
