Ask Dr. Denise Lamothe Q&A's
Name: Tracy


My question doesn't deal with weight issues. Instead it's about weight training. I'm 37 with a complete hysterectomy 2 years ago. I'm on bioidentical HRT.(Test. Included).

Before surgery I was very toned and muscular I've always weight trained but now my muscles have gone to jelly! No matter how much I train, I don't see any difference! I can't find ANYTHING on muscle training after surgical menopause. Can you refer me to anything or anyone with knowledge in this? I would love to get my muscle tone back! All the things that I read are about weight gain.


I'm sorry, Traci -- This is not an area of expertise for me and I don't know of any resources for you. Sorry! Keep searching..... warmly,

Be well,
