Michelle - When you talk to your doctor about HRT, I want you to be sure and tell her that you are concerned about the effects it has on breast cancer. I know that you will probably have to take something but, please, only take it as long as you have too. I am really hung up on HRT since that is what caused my cancer. Just be careful and aware of what is going on.
I'm glad you brought that up to Michelle. I was on HRT for a long time but my docs took me off it almost 3 years ago after the tie in with breast cancer and a scare I had. I use a low dose patch...just enough to keep me from having night sweats. I still have a few hot flashes a day but they are manageable.
