Mar 30, 2017 A lady that I work with had a complete hysterectomy 7 years ago and was on HRT but had a small stroke and quit the HRT. Now she is having issues with weight gain and major hot flashes. I read on a forum a while back about a cycle that could help her possibly but cant locate it, is there anyone that could possibly help out with some suggestions on a HRT with lower sides ( stroke issues ) that can be helpful. plus she has raging ...... issues 50% of the time highs and lows if you get my point. Thanks for any and all help.
