Twenty years ago I had a complete hysterectomy after being diagnosed with uterine cancer. I lost hormones and was plunged into menopause from hell. The loss of hormones has caused thinning of hair and skin. My Dermotologist and Endocronologist recommended hormones. My understanding was that because of my cancer, hormone replacement was not an option. It seems frivolous to worry about hair and skin, but are there others options?
