Ovary transposition surgery

Ovary transposition surgery

I had the ovary transposition surgery before my treatment started, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t successful. Maybe because I had to have my radiation field extended a little bit they still got effected.or maybe they dropped back down during my treatment time , I don’t know. I’ve been experiencing menopause symptoms since my brachytherapy ended, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, hair shedding and breast tenderness sometimes. Has anyone had this surgery and had menopause symptoms for a couple of months and it fade away.Im pretty sure I’m going through menopause because my symptoms aren’t getting any better but worse, but my doctors said to give it a lot more time. I just don’t know if I’m supposed to get on hrt right away or not and my doctor said I’ll have to see if the benefits will out weight the risks of being on hrt. I just kind of hate waiting and not knowing what to do, and at times wish I had a women doctor. because my guy doctors they act like its not that big of a deal even if I am going through menopause and I’m only 33 .
