I'm 38 years old and was first diagnosed as having PCOS when I was in my early 20's. I've always had trouble with losing weight, fatigue, excessive hair, and period problems. When I was 27 I had a complete abdominal hysterectomy (including ovaries and fallopian tubes) because of severe endometriosis.
I was always under the impression that once I had a hysterectomy, I would no longer have the problems with PCOS. Now understand, a doctor did not inform me of this, it was just my own thinking. Unfortunately, I have found out that this is not the case.
My endocrinologist is no longer practicing now so I have no endocrine doctor in my area any longer. He had put me on Metformin (500 mg) and I noticed my appetite wasn't as strong as it normally was. But now that he is no longer in business, I don't know what to do.
