In brief: Not usually
You need to ask your oncologist.
I can't answer this question without knowing your endometrial cancer stage and type. Usually, ert is not recommended & fortunately for you not always needed. There are effective treatments for menopause symptoms, osteoporosis protection, or any hypo-esrogenic problems you may have. Good luck & don't forget to ask your doc.
