Re: Has anyone had a hysterectomy and have had Lupron shots for endo?

Peggy: no - no Lupron for me, and I am not sure I will ever take another hormonal drug. But, my pain is bearable with aspirin. I am also in surgical menopause (after 3 years of the first one!), and find drinking soy milk helps reduce the night sweats and hot flashes. Dandelion greens are also good for night sweats. So is wearing a v-neck Hanes t-shirt to bed. Good luck, Karen
