What should I take to maintain my hormones after my hysterectomy ?

hello I am a 38yr.female I had a complete hysterectomy when I was 30. what hormones do I need to maintain balance as my doc will only give me estrogen. Now I am overweight and hypothyroid,with a TSH of 11.9 and taking 50mcg. of eltroxin. How do I convince my doc to send me to an endocrinologist as she says there is no need.In these 8 yrs. since my hysterectomy other health problems that have come up are:IBS,GERD,cronic migraines, high cholesterol , fatty liver ,degenerative neck,depression, insomnia , hearing loss ,taste and smell loss,low energy,and fibromyalgia. I just want my life and vitality back I used to be a runner and now I just have no energy to do it anymore and am in too much pain.

Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism will explain all your symptoms, i have a feeling that the 50mcg is inadequate for a level of 11, how much do u weigh? Why exactly did u get a hystrectomy at such a young age? Have a healthy living

the most u need is the peace of mind as the number of problems u have mentioned can't be related to hysterectomy though some of them can be due to hypothyroidism.if u want to see endocrinologist then go ahead as this alone seems to solve ur problem.
