Hi all, I am new to the group. I had a total hysterectomy on May 7th. I am having very bad body aches (like the flu). It turns out my estrogen levels were very low (25) I was apparently not absorbing the estrogen from the patch the doctor gave me after surgery. We have switched to estradiol pills. After 1 week my levels have only gone up to 60 so my doctor has doubled the dosage. I am still having very bad body aches, bad enough that I have asked for prescription pain killers because over the counter pain killers do not help at all! Has anyone one else had this symptom of body aches after a hysterectomy or in menopause and has estrogen helped! Please help I need support!
