I had breast cancer 17 years ago. I had a complete hysterectomy 1 yr ago and feel I need HRT. Can I use hormone therapy because of the past cancer?
I am in Tulsa, Ok 74119, can you reccomend a Dr?
Thank you for your inquiry. Bioidentical HRT can still be an option, even if you do have a history of breast cancer. We usually give the doctor referral names out during the consultation part of the Patient Empowerment Program, which I will send you at the end of this note. Please keep in mind we can often times make a recommendation that you can present to your current physician, and have ordered from our pharmacy. We can also arrange saliva testing if that is needed to determine hormone levels, which can be covered by certain insurance policies for only a copay.
To learn more about how we can possibly help you get started on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and feel better through our “Patient Empowerment Program” click here http://www.bpharmacysolutions.com/hormone/overview.asp or post this in your web browser. We provide physician referrals, as part of our program.
The patient empowerment program is a full in-depth consultation with a consultant pharmacist whereby we evaluate your symptoms, lab work of your hormones (if performed), and any other pertinent laboratory results via phone consult. We then make an assessment and write a clinical consult note that includes recommendations for natural bioidentical hormones that you can provide to your doctor.
To participate in the “Patient Empowerment Program”, please fill out the women’s history consultation form which can be located from the link above or directly at the following link http://www.bpharmacysolutions.com/hormone/patienthistory.asp and you will be contacted by one of our consultant pharmacists within 2 business days to set up a consultation. Alternatively, to get started you may call 1-800-728-0288 and request to schedule a consultation with one of our pharmacists.
