Improvement in care for women undergoing surgical menopause

I believe women need to be better prepared for surgical menopause with education around the impacts going forward for their emotional, and mental and physical health. 

Why the contribution is important

I believe we are not efficiently addressing the hormonal impacts immediately post op or down the track for these women.

    As a women forced into menopause post breast cancer
    I have found myself researching and actually suggesting ideas and medicines to improve my wellbeing to my oncologist
    This isn’t right. I have also found there is much more information but I wasn’t given it
    I thought initially I was simply going mad and thought I might have a serious mental issue

    There needs to be better training and support in the health system and consideration should be given to setting up advocates who have experienced all this to assist the medical staff
