Peggy, I had a total hysterectomy in 94. For about a year I was on hormon replacement treatment, different pills, upped doses, different stuff, finally I said that's enough! My family back ground with breast cancer was enough to get me off the hormones. My sister has found an estrogen cream, its like lotion. She gets it from the health food store. I have learned to addapt to the hot flashes, Its kinda nice during the winter when it is so cold. Keep a possitive additude!! Robin
