Lori’s Story – Hysterectomy

Comments: 0

My husband was on a business trip, and he brought something back for me.  He had read an article about bio-identical hormones and the Hotze Health and Wellness Center in the airline magazine.  The article's title was “How to Get Your Wife Back”.  He said I needed to check it out because it was a story about me.

I had a complete hysterectomy nearly two years prior. My surgeon had placed an estrogen patch on me in the recovery room.  Within days, I was feeling the effects of the patch.  I had terrible nightmares and could not sleep.  I began gaining weight so quickly it was frightening, nearly 5 pounds a week, no matter how little I ate.  After recovery from surgery, I felt terrible.  I had been fit and exercised regularly before surgery.  Now, my muscles were like jelly and I had no energy.  But the most troubling was my inability to remember and to concentrate.  I had always been a very decisive person, now I could not make even a small decision. Within months I felt like I had aged 15 years.  My surgeon said I was just getting older and I needed to accept it. She said I was depressed and prescribed an antidepressant. 

Of course I was depressed, duh!!!  I had gained 50 pounds in a matter of months, was tired all the time, and did not have the passion and libido that my husband and I cherished, and I could not remember anything!!  I was afraid to drive because my reactions were so slow, but I knew I did not want to take antidepressants.  I had done research and believed that my hormones were not in balance.  I tried a combination of synthetic testosterone and estrogen.  It affected my gall bladder to the point that the surgeon wanted to take it out!! She did not believe it was the synthetic testosterone, but as soon as I stopped taking it, my gall bladder no longer hurt.  I tried several other combinations of synthetic hormones, and nothing helped.  Then I read my story in the airline magazine. 

I began the Hotze Health and Wellness Center’s program and my life changed.  Within two weeks, I experienced a positive difference in my sleep, my energy level and my mood.  My muscle strength felt much better, and I was able to begin to exercise again.  Now, 18 months into the program, I am still improving.  Even when I think I can not feel any better, I do.  My thinking is clear, and concentration is easy again. My only regret is that I did not know about the program and bio-identical hormones before my surgery, so I would not have gone through what I did.  The good news is, I know it works. I am living proof.  It was what I needed for my husband to get his wife back.
