Hi there I hope I can get some answers as I am struggling. I was diagnosed with stage 2 idc breast cancer back in August before that I new I was brca 1 positive because both my mother and sister had ovarian cancer. I opted for the oopherectomy removal of my ovaries and then after suffering for a few months of Insomnia, hot flashes and night sweats mood o had to go on hrt that was six years ago. I did come off in October before I started chemo I was not so bad but after all my treatments ended back in March I started to get those severe menopause symptoms again. Its contraindicationes to give hrt to me now because of the prior diagnosis of breast cancer but I can’t live like this I fought too hard to not live now my life is horrible to say the least. I can’t do a thing drs want me all drugged up on antidepressants, sleeping pills and benzodiazepines no way that’s won’t fix it it will make it worse. I’m not crazy I’m menopausal. My question is had any other women here have this issue and now in hrt even after having breast cancer. I’m 48 by the way and had my ovaries out at 43. Help ?!
