Georgia Girl, I spoke with my dr yesterday and he asked if I was still taking the hormones. I said yes and I guess you are going to try to get me to stop.
He said no, Im not convinced yet they do any harm.
He said he has women in their 60's (Im 57) that have stopped only to go back on because they feel like crap and are getting hot flashes again. Im staying on them.
My hair dresser went off them because she said she heard now they cause alzheimers. I feel that since I have been on them all these years I would have whatever problems they cause by now. As long as you go and get your yearly check up then you are fine. I think it was blown all out of proportion (so does my dr). At this age I have enough aches and pains without being a B---- ! good luck to you and let me know if you decide to stay on them. You have been on them a long time also and if you feel good taking them then you should.
