I'm just home from hospital having had a radical hysterectomy with ovary and lymph node removal last Tuesday. I'm 36 years of age so none of my friends have gone through menopause yet. Given that my main concern to date was having the cancer removed, I havent asked my medical team anything about menopause and nothing has been said to me about it to date. I am assuming because I had my ovaries removed that I will enter menopause soon, am I right? And if so, is there anything you would advise to prepare for it? How long after the surgery should I expect to start experiencing symptoms? Apologies for all the questions but I have just been so focused on the cancer that I am only starting to consider the side effects of the treatment now.
