Big Decisions are Delayed
The test of my estrogen levels came back yesterday and show I'm still "post-menopausal", meaning my ovaries aren't coming back to functioning yet, not producing estrogen. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet. Overall, I think I'm relieved because honestly, we have enough on our plate right now, and having one more big decision to deal with could potentially have pushed me over the edge. Mother Nature has granted me a reprieve, at least for now. The test will be run again in April to see if there is any change. For most women whose ovaries come back to functioning, it happens in the first year after finishing chemo, which was September for me.
