Hello and welcome to JA, Dr Saleem here, i will be right back with the answer.
Well as far as your hormones are concerned its pretty much normal at this age after menopause. You have had two major surgeries and that triggered hair loss,this is called telogen effluvium . Its a totally reversible condition.
Factors causing stress should be alleviated.
Diet rich in iron, vitamins and zinc is advised.
Minoxidil spray to increase hair growth can be used.
Thyroid proofile should be done
I hope it is helpful, happy to answer any further queries.
I see you reposted the query, please let me know of any more queries you are having
Off course the raised LH and FH mean insufficient estrogen after menopause that inturn lets testosterone take over and it causes hair loss. But the recent events like major surgeries can be a big cause of sudden trigger to hairloss
Yeah hormone replacement is definitely of benefit in your case.
Yeah you may start taking it. Before starting please remember it can increase risk of clotting or heart disease and stroke. Estrogen progestogen combos are considered better then estrogen alone like premarin
Start with 0.3 mg daily dose
