No matter how strict my diet is, I seem to loose too much weight, it almost always is worse around this time of year...October-November. That happens to be when I was first diagnosed with cancer 10 years ago (I was 20 years old), now I am 30. I have gotten married which supposedly would put on a couple pounds right?? The old saying goes something like, once you settle down your tend to start gaining weight. Well, not for me evidently. I've had two kids too. Got really heavy for me, went from 118-170 with my first, almost that for my second. BUT STILL I have lost my breast fat, they are less than an A cup, my periods are wacky still, I've been trying to regulate this obnoxious phenomenon of turning into a 12 year old little girl again with progesterone cream, applying it everyday. Was suppose to get hormone therapy after cancer treatments but have read many negative experiences of that with unwanted side affects. Then got diagnosed celiac soon after cancer treatments were over, got hormone tests three times since then and they have always been wacky! The only hormones that are not affected are the testosterone and the DHEA.
SO I've been reading more, I don't have Hashimotos, I just don't meet the symptoms. I might have Crohns but I'm already doing the best I can for that. My thyroid checked out okay from tests done in the past when I had much worse symptoms then now. I've had a full body MRI when I was 20 and nothing extra was found invading my important organs, e.a. tumors around the pituitary or ovarian cancer.
Not really finding a realistic direction to search in here.
Anyone have this experience?
Anyone have suggestions to research?
Anyone been through hormone therapy successfully and what side effects/experiences did you have during/afterward?
