Will you still get vaginal sloughing after partial hysterectomy and are done with menopause?

Will you still get vaginal sloughing after partial hysterectomy and are done with menopause?

Vaginal sloughing?: The vaginas in post menopausal women can lose some ability to stretch as estrogen declines.

Estradio level serum is 50.79 what does it mean I'm 30 years of age I had a partial hysterectomy 4 months ago been having hot and cold sweats?

Follow up visit: For highly specific result interpretation it's best to discuss with the ordering physician who can put it in the proper context. If you still have your ovaries then one expect normal hormone production. Your Estrogen level is normal but a doctor would not test Estrogen levels typically when evaluating hot flashes.

I  just did a partial hysterectomy 4 days ago and I seem to have a lot of gas and I feel bloated, how can I get rid of the gas?

Walking: Gas, bloating and constipation are very common after surgery. We encourage moving around and walking. This helps stimulate the intestines to start moving again after being put to sleep with anesthesia. You should be able to pass gas still.
